    A landlady has been forced to call time on her pub after flogging racy pictures failed to help save the business.

    Lauren Beers, 32, took to making saucy content for a popular subscription-based website to try and keep her pub afloat back last year. At the time, she took to the adult platform to earn some extra cash, and was charging £12 a month for her content in a bid to keep her treasured business alive.

    But sadly she's announced the pub has had to close its doors due to building financial pressure. She said the decision was "terribly difficult", but the Waggon and Horses in Outlane near Huddersfield has had to stop tap.

    Writing on the Waggon and Horses Facebook page, the team wrote: "It's taken us a day or so to figure out the words for this post, so maybe it's just best to be blunt.

    "Unfortunately, we have made the terribly difficult decision to close with immediate effect. Since Covid hit hospitality in 2020 – we haven't taken a wage from the pub.

    "Ploughed all the grants/ bounce back loans straight back into the business in hopes there was still longevity in this trade, as we'd always planned. We've both had part time jobs to help."

    It was also explained that they have also ploughed their own money into the business in the hope it would survive. Over time they learnt this may have been the "wrong" thing to do, but they did everything they could to keep the boozer serving up pints.

    Despite working hard over the past 12 months to keep the business going, it sadly hasn't been possible. Back last year, Lauren even took to getting saucy to try and put the business back on the map.

    At the time, she said: "We’re fighting to stay open as the pub is a dying British tradition, and we have staff who will lose jobs if we close.

    "I've only ever been really good at three things: pulling pints, necking pints and t**s. So… I thought I'd combine a guy's (and lots of girls') favourite things.

    "You subscribing could mean the survival of a Great British Boozer."

    Alongside her OnlyFans account, Lauren even brought out her ownlimited-edition beer in a bid to drum up some extra cash.

    Sadly, it hasn't been the case, as Lauren admitted the bills just continued to grow. She said it's setting them back around £30,000 a month to open the doors, whereas it used to be around £18,000.

    It's come as a devastating blow, but she said it's been a "pleasure" to serve the customers over the past 10 years. She said they feel lucky to have served so many lovely customers and friends, and thanked everyone for their support.

    The statement added: "To say this is hurting both of us would truly be an understatement, but we can't keep doing this for nothing, and cannot keep putting money into something that doesn't work."
