The ‘O’ on the sign at The County Music Bar, on Saltergate, has become a casualty of the heatwave, prompting the venue to issue an apology on Facebook for its ‘interesting’ new name.

The pub posted: “We apologise for any offence... the heat has caused the ‘O’ to crack and drop off leaving us with a rather interesting new sign... I can confirm we are not turning into a strip club.”
