Following England’s Euro 2020 quarter-final win over Ukraine on Saturday, fans at The Red Lion pub, on Park Road, were overjoyed - and fortunately the rain kept them inside.
At around 10.30pm a black car crashed into the beer garden, leaving pub landlady Emma Draper without the ‘majority’ of her outdoor seating.
She told the Chronicle: “It is frustrating but I’m really thankful that it was raining and no-one was sat outside because it would have been so much worse if there were people there.
“We won’t be able to use the majority of the beer garden for about a week because we need new fencing and tables - we’re going to be losing business from it.
“But the police were really quick on the scene and everyone was brilliant - the council and the locals acted so well.”
