The Shoulder of Mutton Pub in Mytholmroyd has reopened its car park and beer garden which had been closed since the Boxing Day floods of 2015.

Comedian Jon Richardson cut the ribbon at the official opening, while a tree was planted in memory of John Hartley, who was previous landlord for almost 40 years, by his wife Lyn Hartley.
