The owners of a B&B in Gayton are offering free rooms to NHS staff drafted into the QE hospital. 

Neil and Lisa Staples closed The Crown last week after government advice and have put their empty rooms to good use. 

Neil said they are already helping people: 

"We've got people in their now, we've got a intensive care unit person and we've also got a critical care nurse as well. 

"There are people being drafted into the area and we thought we could help out.

"There must be people out there in the same position as us and what we're trying to do is say to them, let's help out with all this. Let's be a big community and eradicate it."

Any NHS staff in need of a place to stay during the pandemic are urged to get in touch with the couple.
