Fight Against Maturity

Roll out the barrel


Now that’s what you call a beer garden. A barrage of runaway barrels caused carnage after a brewery lorry dropped its load in a quiet Somerset village.

About 100 metal kegs, barrels and bottles rolled into gardens in Pecking Mill, near Shepton Mallet, battering flower displays and spraying beer over nearby homes. The accident is thought to have caused damage worth thousands of pounds, and left residents in shock.

The 14-metre articulated lorry toppled while taking a sharp bend on the A371, a stretch of road known locally as an accident blackspot.
