The Crown Inn, Gayton, will be offering rooms to staff being brought into Norfolk to cover frontline workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Owners Neil and Lisa Staples closed their pub last week after advice from the government stated all pubs, bars and clubs should close.

Now, the couple are reaching out to give back to doctors and nurses fighting the outbreak.

Mrs Staples said: “As we try to do as much as we can for each other during this awful virus, we want to reach out to those on the front line, our amazing NHS.

“We know that people are being drafted in from other areas in order to help our amazing doctors and nurses at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital so we would like to offer our three rooms for free.”
