He said: "It's something that you're always aware of in Little Eaton, especially older families. Your grandparents knew about her and mine certainly did.

Speaking about Lawand's case, a Home Office spokesman said: "It is only fair that we do not shoulder the burden of asylum claims that should rightly be considered by other countries.

"Asylum seekers should claim in the first safe country they arrive in. Where there is evidence that an asylum seeker is the responsibility of another European country we will seek to return them there."

A developer wants to knock down The Spotted Cow in Holbrook and build about eight houses on the site.

However the pub was given a stay of execution in November last year, when planning permission was refused by the local authority. 

Stephanie Limb (pictured), from the Holbrook Community Society, said: "We are in talks with builders, who might be willing to go in a joint bid with us, to build two plots at the back and us buy the pub and car park as the community."
