As Paul Heaton, from the Housemartins, the Beautiful South and now partnering with Jacqui Abbott, sang; it's happy hour again.

And for one King's Lynn pub the regulars have been enjoying a tipple of their choice on him.

The Eagle in Norfolk Street has seen regulars and customers have a drink with money that the pop singer and songwriter has put behind the bar, to the tune of £1,000.

Tony Wright, wearing his best outfit in preparation for the Queen's Jubilee and as celebration for St George's Day in April, said: "I am enjoying a drink on him and Clare is the best barmaid I've ever met, and I've been around the world."

Customers including Bob Nicholl and Terry and Sandra Newman who moved from Yorkshire to Lynn a year ago were pleased to get their complimentary birthday drink.

Sandra posted on Facebook, followed by two heart emojis, saying: "Nice surprise today free drinks at the Eagle King's Lynn to celebrate the 60th of Paul Heaton from The Beautiful South.

They were pleased not to have walked in to the wrong bar as per the lyrics of one of the Housemartins' songs.

Landlord Carl Taylor and bar staff Claire Langley said they thought it was an incredible thing when their head office contacted them and said that it was real.

Not to worry though as it is only one drink per person so no red eyes in the morning.
