Free beer e-mail blunder by Northamptonshire council

A fake e-mail about a consultation into pubs providing free beer has mistakenly been sent out by Northamptonshire County Council.

The e-mail was sent to people signed up to receive details of public consultations from the council.

It said there were proposals as to whether every pub should give out free beer one day a year.

A council spokesman said there had been a "mix-up" in a training session and that the e-mail should never have been sent.
