A magpie with a taste for beer has been banned from a pub in West Yorkshire.

The bird used to be a regular at the King's Arms in Heath Common, Wakefield.

But customers became fed up as the cheeky bird went after their pints, says the Daily Mail.

Now the magpie has had his supply of beer cut off by landlord Alan Tate who keeps his front door firmly shut.

Barman Alex Fletcher said: "He would hop around the pub and the regulars loved it. But the novelty has worn off. People got annoyed at his head constantly stuck in their beer."
