Drinkers raised their glasses after the long-awaited reopening of a pub yesterday.

The Bohemia, in High Road, North Finchley, opened its doors at 5pm yesterday - a happy ending to a year-long campaign to save it.

It was unexpectedly closed by its previous owners last August but after squatters moved into the empty building, The London Brewing Company announced it would be a pub once more.

Just half an hour after opening, the pub had already welcomed more than 50 punters, which new landlords Senan Sexton and Dan Fox hope will be a sign of things to come.
