A theatre group is considering legal action after Redcar and Cleveland Council opted to sell the former Guisborough Register Office to a national pub chain.

Earthbeat Theatre Company, which is made up of adults with learning disabilities, hoped to move into the building.

The council said it had offered alternative sites to the group and the pub would create 50 jobs in the town.

Mark Denten reports.
