Winchcombe Hospital, which closed in 2008 and was put up for sale in October, has been sold for £2.25m.

NHS Gloucestershire said the purchaser's intentions for the future use of the building are not yet known.

Councillor Ron Allen said: "People are saying that they want something that would benefit the community, and I agree with that."

The proceeds of the sale are being put towards the new hospital in Tewkesbury currently being built.
