JD Wetherspoon says its decision to close numerous pubs around the UK does not have any impact on plans to open a venue in Alnwick.

The company received planning permission for the Corn Exchange in 2014, but progress has stalled.

A spokesman said the company is waiting to hear from the county council about a land-swap issue.
