Runaway beer barrels bombard village

‘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.’
