A popular pub regular has thanked a town who rallied to give his "appalling" home a makeover.
Carl Marshall, 89, left his house in Glossop a year ago over fears it was bad for his health.
It had no heating or carpets and was plagued by damp and mice - conditions that shocked those who saw it.
To help, the community of the Derbyshire town came together over 11 months to completely rebuild the inside of the house.
