Customers at the John Logie Baird Wetherspoons pub in Hastings were under the impression that balloons and decorations put up on Wednesday were in celebration of a new Primark store which opened at Priory Meadow on the same day.

In fact the decorations, which included a colourful balloon arch in the doorway, were to mark a new drinks and food menu.

A member of the Wetherspoons bar-staff confided: “You would not believe the number of people who have asked us if we are celebrating Primark opening.
