Roadworks 'finish off' Appleby's bookshop in Morpeth
Appleby's bookshop has been at heart of Morpeth for more than 130 years.
But within weeks the store will close, blaming roadworks outside for decimating trade.
The shop has been run by the Wallace family for the past 30 years and the family said the roadworks were the final "nail in the coffin" during difficult times.
