Residents have expressed their sadness over the closure of a pub in their village that has been described as the 'hub of the community.' The Spread Eagle is located in the Nottinghamshire village of Hockerton and has been running since the 1930s.

The much-loved pub on Caunton Road, was put up for sale earlier this year as a result of the impact of the pandemic on businesses, Nottinghamshire Live reports. Villagers have said they will now have to travel to Southwell, Kelham or Caunton and will miss having a pub nearby.

William Boucher, 78, is retired and has lived opposite the pub for half a century. He said: "We have been here 50 years and it's been here all that time. It's been a good pub, it's a shame it's closed."
