A Tyneside pub has called time on one of its regular visitors, Peggy the horse, after the premises were refurbished.

Peggy, a 13-year-old mare, used to enjoy a pint of beer and a packet of crisps alongside her owner at the Alexandra Hotel in Jarrow.

However, she is no longer allowed to prop up the bar following a refit which included new carpets.
