Booze prices will be slashed at Wetherspoons after an October 31 Brexit.

Mr Martin says he can plunge his pint prices because Wetherspoon can do better deals with firms outside of the EU.

He said: “We can get our supplies cheaper, everything we buy from outside the EU can be tariff free or mostly tariff free – which will also make our customers better off.”

It comes as the Prime Minister has warned the EU that the UK will be leaving “do or die” by the Halloween deadline.

The chain has 879 pubs across Britain including several in Doncaster and Sheffield.
