A hotel has slashed the price of its pint to 6p to mark the Queen's passing for a very unique reason.
Brits mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, who visited the Entwistle Hotel in Darwen, Lancashire, were given the opportunity to drown their sorrows today for the average cost of a pint when she acceded to the throne.
The boozer says it was selling beer at the knockdown prices so punters could celebrate the life of Her Majesty with a pint at 1952 prices.
