DAMAGE at a Crook pub was not criminal.

Durham Police confirmed the force received a report on Wednesday morning regarding damage to wires from a cellar fan at the Travellers Rest, in Crook.

However, it was later found the damage was due to an old wire falling off.

Maggy Young, who took ownership of the pub last Tuesday with Graham Young, said the pub was open for business and is "welcoming customers new and old".
