A Pocklington pensioner with a talent for writing has published his first book, at the age of 71.

Author John Charlesworth saw his book hit the shelves last week after publisher Austin and Macauley put their weight behind the project.

John’s book, ‘The Adventures of the Garden Fairies: The Land of Mog’, is aimed at children and has taken him several months to write.
