REVELLERS at the Munich Beer Festival are a careless lot.

We understand that you might lose the odd key ring while downing one of the 5.5m steins of beer consumed at last year’s festival, but to lose 1,900?

And maybe we can forgive a mislaid mobile phone, but 50?

But that’s really is small beer against the rest of the property lost by the 6.5m festival-goers.

The list includes three dogs and a ski binding.

As the beer festival is not renowned for its snow, we can only assume someone misread the word ‘piste’.

All a bit alarming, really.
