Newark pub may have to close if council insists on new paint job

A landlord in Nottinghamshire says he may have to shut his doors for good if the local council insists his pub is re-painted.

The White Hind in Newark is a grade 2 listed building and had a fresh paint job 2 weeks ago.

The council says he should have applied for planning permission but have told him the new blue colour is inappropriate and they will probably refuse it.
