One in five of Newcastle's taxi's are to be branded with Newcastle Brown's logo over the next year.

The campaign, which will see each taxi adorned with the flag of one of 40 different countries, is designed to highlight the brand's popularity around the world.

Scottish Courage, the brand's owner, said: "The campaign is all about the brand being part of the city and it is aimed at promoting the city's ownership of the brand and Newcastle Brown's international success."
