A man has spent his cancelled holiday money building a pub in his back garden while on furlough.

Karl Heath, 50, from Rotherham, said he “always wanted to build a pub” so built the Furlough Inn as “something to do”.

He said: “Our holiday this year got cancelled and I needed a project on furlough so I used the money to build a pub in the garden.”

Mr Heath, his wife, sons and friends take it in turns to go to the bar in small groups at weekends.
