PUB RELEASES BEER IN HONOUR OF DJ DEREK

A pub is set to release a locally-brewed beer in honour of Britain’s oldest DJ.

Derek Serpell-Morris, also known as DJ Derek, went missing in July 2015, but his death was only confirmed when the 73-year-old’s remains were found last month.

Now, his local pub, a Wetherspoons in Bristol, is releasing a 4.8 per cent ale in honour of the veteran DJ, who was well known to the locals and considered a bit of a legend.

According to student newspaper The Tab, the first pints of Derek Ale will be poured on April 22 – the date of the former-accountant’s public funeral.

The whole city is invited to the send-off at St Agnes Church, where friends, family and fans of DJ Derek will celebrate his life before heading down to Wetherspoons for a pint of Derek Ale.

The catchline for the ale will be “love the life you live, and live the life you love” – a tribute to Derek’s guiding philosophy.

Based in Bristol, the veteran DJ was known for playing a blend of 60s rocksteady, reggae, ska, dancehall and soul.

A Wetherspoons spokesman said: “Derek was a great supporter of Wetherspoon pubs and many of our staff and customers knew him.”
