Halfway House pub campaigners hold vigils in Gloucestershire village

Campaigners in one village have vowed to save their local pub, holding weekly vigils until it has reopened.

The Halfway House at Box, near Minchinhampton, was closed on 8 July by owners The Novalis Trust, who have said it is no longer a viable business.

BBC reporter Steve Knibbs spoke to campaign leader Sean Kelly.

He also spoke to Peter Whitbread, community shareholder at the nearby Fleece Inn in Hillsley, and Tim Mars from the Campaign for Real Ale.
