Peterborough MP backs pub landlord’s fight to save historic city hostelry

A pub landlord’s fight to protect the wellbeing of his Peterborough hostelry has won the backing of the city’s MP.

Graham Finding, owner of the 185-year-old Ostrich Inn, in North Street, has been left fearing for the future following a noise test that he says does not reflect the level of music that comes from the pub late at night.

The test was carried out as part of a planning application to build 125 flats in nearby Westgate and found there was only a low level of noise from the pub despite it being an award-winning late-night live music venue.
