THE pleasures of reading can be enjoyed free of charge by rural dwellers near Leamington, thanks to an inventive use of a disused phone box.

‘Books in the Box’ book exchange has been set up by Harbury parish council in nearby Deppers Bridge in a red telephone box that is no longer used for making calls.

Parish council chairman Tim Lockley said: “We hope residents will make good use of this facility – one of the few in the country.”
