A man who's visited more than 1,600 UK pubs in less than two years was left horrified by what he saw in a Spanish boozer.
Dale Harvey is on a mission with his fiancée, Holly Booth, to visit every pub in the UK but went venturing on his own stag do abroad earlier this month, where he "saw things that no man should have to see".
The boys-only trip took Dale to the infamous Red Lion in Benidorm, a popular hotspot where soon-to-be brides and grooms often let loose one last time before saying their vows.

The pub was made famous by what it describes as an "adult magic show" performed by Sticky Vicky, known in certain circles for her impressive ability to "perform fellatio on a broom handle" and "pop ping pong balls out of her vagina into little red cups that were at least four or five feet away," according to Dale.
"It was packed out with people cheering, just amazed by what they’re witnessing. I can honestly say it’s like nothing we’ve got in this country," he told the Daily Star.
"It’s certainly the strangest experience you’ll probably ever have when going into a pub for a drink."
Dale said he'd heard of the legend of Sticky Vicky before, but that he wasn't prepared for how graphic the show would be.

The original Sticky Vicky, who performed in Benidorm for several decades, has reportedly hung up her ping-pong-popping hat and passed the baton to her "granddaughter".
And to top off Dale's surprise, the whole show has been given a Star Wars-themed makeover.
"I’ve never seen Star Wars, so I don’t really know the relevant characters that they’re trying to portray, but the essence of the show is still the same," Dale added.
"They've replaced the broom handles with light sabres.
"It was absolutely scarring. It is actually horrific."
Dale is now back in the UK and pub-crawling business as usual has resumed with Holly by his side.
The pair started their quest to visit every pub in the UK a year and a half ago after they made it their mission to have a tipple in every boozer in their home county of Nottinghamshire.
Since completing the challenge, the couple haven't stopped exploring watering holes up and down the country – and even got engaged in the pub.
Dale and Holly are now planning to tie the knot in a bar come their wedding day in September.
"We got engaged on the pub crawl [and] we're getting married at a venue in Nottinghamshire we’d already done on the pub crawl," Dale added.
"We sort of managed to kill two bird with one stone by viewing the venue and having a drink in there at the same time."
The Daily Star has contacted the Red Lion Benidorm for more information.
