Drinkers at a Shropshire pub have been left baffled by the discovery of a mystery bug.
Landlord Roger Hotchkiss came across the fearsome looking creepy-crawly yesterday morning [30 August 2005] in the Brewery Inn, which he runs in Coalport.
Mr Hotchkiss said none of his regulars have been able to identify the creature which he trapped in a pint glass after he spotted what he described as a large "stinger" on the insect's rear.
He is also worried the brown creature with a yellow underside may be poisonous and could be dangerous to anyone who comes into contact with it.
Mr Hotchkiss said: "My dad always said anything with a yellow belly is poisonous. I've never seen anything like it in 50 years.
The pub landlord said his neighbours had hit the books to find out the identity of the mysterious bug which is described as brown and about 25mm long.
