The Wheel Inn in Findern near Derby shut down in April. It has been bought by a funeral directors who are turning it into a funeral parlour.

The protesters shouting "Save the Wheel" marched from Findern Garden Centre to the village green, where they set up their own makeshift pub serving drinks and snacks.

They say the loss of local shops, the post office and now the pub is killing community life.

The new owners Murrays Funeral Directors say the pub had been in decline for more than a decade and no-one had been willing to take it on as a going concern. Renovation work is now well underway to convert it into a funeral parlour, they added.

Villager Phil Watts said a local resident was willing to buy the pub off Murrays for £340,000, but it appears the offer has come too late.

Police renew appeal for woman missing for 36 years

Police searching for a woman who has been missing for 36 years have renewed their appeal for information.

The missing woman gave her name as Susan Banner. She was last seen on January 5 1978.

That afternoon she left a women's refuge in Derbyshire to view a flat. She did not turn up for the viewing and has not been seen since. She told staff that she had left an abusive relationship with a man from Wolverhampton. She had been living in the Manor Road area of Derby before going to the refuge.

Susan has been described as white, about 5ft 4in, of thin build and a pale complexion. She had light, greying hair. When she was last seen, Susan was wearing a khaki green shirt, brown and white jumper and a green belted raincoat, with a brown and cream zipped shopping bag.

Susan was of Irish origin. She said she was born in 1939, which would have made her 39 when she disappeared, and 74 today. But police think she may have given a false name and date of birth.

Anyone with information should contact Derbyshire Police.

Cotton said: "If you'd told me at the start of the year that I'd make first team debuts in both one-day competitions - and earn a professional contract - I'd have been delighted with that, so it's been a great year."
