For birthday girl Tanya Powell, we’re not sure what’s more embarrassing: being thrown out of a pub by police because of an argument over two pence – or the fact that she was celebrating her birthday in a Wetherspoons.
The chav-tastic celebration at the Packet Pub in Falmouth, Cornwall, ended prematurely last month when a row broke out because one of the revellers was 2p short after buying some crisps and a pint.
One thing led to another and, before they knew it, the police were involved.
“To call the police out on something like this was a waste of police time and something that could easily have been avoided,” said party-goer Sarah Hibbert, who was presumably wearing burberry at the time. “What they did was petty and pathetic.”
