Revellers at a Welling beer festival partied so hard over the weekend that organisers were forced to draft in an emergency beer supply.

The third annual Welling Beer Festival took place at the Guy Earl of Warwick, over July 25 - 27, offering festival-goers the opportunity to sample 25 cask ales and six ciders.

The event is organised by Bexley Round Table alongside Welling Round Table with all proceeds going to community projects - this year's event raised more than £6,000.

The first day of the festival saw revelers sup a whole cask of ale and by the second evening organisers were forced to order emergency supplies of ale and cider.

Kerry Allon, a member of Welling Round Table said: "It was the best one yet, it was a lovely, lovely weekend.

"We had to order emergency supplies of ale and cider and the landlord of the Earl had to run out to get an emergency supply of beer and spirits because the pub had run out.

"Everyone had a great times sampling the ales, socialising, enjoying the food and their was a bouncy castle for the children."
