FULL REPORT: Hotel's change of heart over refund

A hotel in Hampshire, that refused to refund a widower for his 50th wedding anniversary party when his wife died, has now agreed to give him his money back. 78-year-old Eric Clifton from Swanmore had to cancel the event after his wife Joyce died from cancer 2 months before.

The Lysses House Hotel in Fareham initially refused to refund the £700 he had already paid - but, as Sarah Cooper reports, they've now had a change of heart.
