Bloke camps outside pub with beer to make sure he gets a pint as boozers reopen

A man eager to grab a pint at his local boozer camped outside with a couple of tinnies to make sure he was the first one through the door.

Pubs and restaurants open up for the first time since December today (April 12) as Covid restrictions ease across the UK.

Eager Scott Lowe took his thirst for booze to another level, deciding he was going to be one of the first in the country to get a pint by camping outside his local Wetherspoon.

According to his friend Callum, Scott, who goes by the name of Urwin, put up a tent outside the Pilgrim's Progress in Bedford.

The pub isn’t taking bookings for their outside area, so the pair had to roll up extra early so they didn't miss out.

Urwin even bought a four-pack of larger along with him as well as a comfortable look bed set-up complete with a very patriotic Union Jack pillow.

Pubs in England opened up as part of the next step in the Government’s easing of lockdown, with 40% of the nation's boozers able to serve customers again.
