Beer keg robberies.

THOUSANDS of beer kegs are being stolen from pubs as thieves cash in on soaring aluminium prices.

Landlords are being warned to step up security - but for some it's too late.

In one raid in Britain a gang swooped on the Merchants Inn in Rugby, Warwicks, and snatched 69 kegs worth EUR6,000 just as work was due to start on a lock-up barrel store.

Now breweries may start charging EUR90 deposits on every keg.

A spokesman said: "With scrap metal prices rising ever higher, stealing our kegs is an increasingly profitable business."
