"The Cricketers is a real community asset, just like so many other local pubs in the constituency.

"I look forward to it being reopened.

"Unfortunately, three British pubs close their doors for good every day. We must do all we can to save our locals.

"I will continue to support our pubs, because they bring people together and boost our local economy."
