Sherlock Holmes and the mystery of the empty lager cans

On the last day of August, Newcastle's Evening Chronicle has made a late bid for the silliest story of the silly season.

It’s a mystery what happened to the lager but it’s not there.

I couldn’t believe it when I went to get a can and realised that every one of them had nothing or almost nothing in.

Quite the mystery indeed.

Hat-tip the Evening Chronicle.
