Pubs across London have joined a campaign called 'Buy a Bobby a Beer' — pledging to thank the emergency services for their help during the riots.

The group, launched on Facebook, is asking pubs to pledge a beer to a member of the police and other emergency services.

Fuller's has joined the campaign and during the weekend of 19-21 August will be offering a free drink to any member of the England and Wales Police, Fire or Ambulance Services who presents a valid warrant card in a participating pub.

They will be entitled to a free pint of London Pride, a glass of red or white wine or a soft drink.

David Wilson, director of public affairs at the British Beer & Pub Association, said: "The BBPA fully supports this brilliant initiative."
