Cannock's Pied Piper pub being transformed into shop and flat
Work is underway to transform a derelict Cannock pub into a shop and a flat.
The Pied Piper, in Pye Green Road, closed in 2014.
It is claimed the new shop would create six full time and five part time jobs.
Two years ago firefighters were called to a blaze at the empty pub.
Armed police were sent the month before following reports of a group of people with an air rifle.
Plans were previously submitted to convert the building into a supermarket, but later withdrawn.
Ex-footballer Stan Collymore, who is from Cannock, gave his backing to campaign to reopen the pub four years ago.
