MEMBERS of a pop band were left stranded in North Yorkshire with around 200 revellers when Britain's highest pub became snowed in.

Scouting For Girls were playing a charity gig at the Tan Hill Inn, in Swaledale, for Children In Need on Friday night.

But heavy snow blocked roads around the pub, at Arkengarthdale, in Swaledale, and the band and their audience had to make alternative arrangements.

Several people squeezed into the 30 rooms at the inn. Some had to sleep on floors and sofas, while others snuggled up in their vehicles.

Landlady Louise Peace said: "This morning I was cooking breakfast for around 90 people whilst we waited for the snow ploughs to arrive. 

York Press:

"Usually we would charge people for staying the extra night, but on this  occasion we have decided to give the extra money to charity."

The event raised almost £7,000 for Children In Need.
