A local pub in Warwickshire was forced to close just a few months ago, reflecting the fate of many village pubs nationally.

Across the country, over 20 pubs close every month, but for The New Inn which opened in 1790 in Norton Lindsey, there could be a second chance.

Members of the community have come together to open a community pub, which will be the first in Warwickshire.

Speaking to ITV News Central, one of those involved, Lucy Boyes says, "we are making sure it becomes more than just a pub."
