Newspapers last-minute headline change after a coincidental Northern Ireland faux pas.

A UK based newspaper, Metro, made a last-minute change to their main headline this morning after it appeared to inadvertently cause a faux pas with its two front-page stories

The initial headline read ‘Glorious Twelfth’ below a story of the overnight riots in Belfast, which at first glance could have been about the Orange Orders annual parade on July 12 in Northern Ireland.

Instead, the story was in fact about the relaxation of several restrictions in England from Monday, April 12, allowing the opening of pubs and restaurants.

In a last-minute change, the newspaper seemed to realise the coincidental connection with Northern Ireland and the headline was reworded to ‘Get The Beers In’.
