Cheers to wrongly released prisoner

A PRISONER wrongly released from jail walked to his old school friend's pub for a couple of beers before handing himself in.

Landlady of the Soho Foundry Tavern, Karen Clifford, said Lewis Harwood paid the pub a visit just after opening on Monday last week, hours after he was let out of HMP Birmingham.

Her son Darren Clifford, who helps run the bar, went to school with Harwood.

Ms Clifford said Harwood knew he had been wrongly released but had a bacon sandwich washed down with two bottles of Budweiser before handing himself in.
