A man used a fake driving licence featuring 'Andy Scouser' from Little Britain to try to gain entry to a beer festival at the weekend.

Police suspicions were raised when the reveller stood at the bar at the the Three Valley's Beer Festival in Dronfield, Derbyshire and said "I want that one" before showing the card.

Derbyshire Police said nobody had been arrested despite the fact the "door staff were having none of it."

In a post, Dronfield Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, which saw the identification given to the door staff on Saturday (June 2), said: "Appears Andy has changed a lot in appearance since his Little Britain days and aged very well.

"Door staff recognise every trick in the book! No beer for Andy last night."

The address listed on the passport was "Yeah I know I live in a house".
