On Tap …

Norwegian housewife, Haldis Gundersen, was planning to do the washing up when she made an unusual discovery at her apartment in Kristiansund.

On with the tap and out with … beer.

Two flights below, workers in the Big Tower Bar faced the more disappointing realisation that water was flowing from their beer taps.

Someone (and we want names) had connected a beer barrel to the apartment water pipe by mistake. “"The water and beer pipes do touch each other, but you have to be really creative to connect them together," said Per Egil Myrvang from the local beer distributor.

Ms Gundersen bore no grudge. "If it happens again, I'm going to order Baileys," she said.

In Norway, the sale of alcohol is controlled through a state monopoly and beer prices are some of the highest in the world.

And the price of a real plumber?
