Cat found in pub's lager delivery
Pub staff were surprised to discover that a cat had been delivered along with their weekly lager supplies.

The black and white animal arrived at The Swan in Ironbridge, Shropshire, on board a Carlsberg lorry with the driver unaware of his extra passenger.

It has now been adopted by staff member Catherine Redgrave who has christened it Carlsberg.

"He is more than welcome to stay with me, but it would be nice to see him back with his real owners," she said.

It is not known where Carlsberg has come from, or how long the animal had been travelling in the back of the lorry.

When we still had no idea where he belonged at the end of the day I took him home and he has been with me ever since

"We spotted little Carlsberg cowering on the lorry frame and eventually coaxed him down," said 26-year-old Catherine.

"The delivery driver was as shocked as we were and said that we could look after him because he didn't know where he had come from.

"We fed him some bacon and milk and took him to the vet in case he had been microchipped.
