Tea fanatic Nathan Derek Garner decided to cement his love for the popular brew by changing his name.
The 31-year-old concrete factory worker, who started drinking tea after his grandfather introduced him to it at the age of 12, now drinks 20 cups of the beverage every single day.

The idea of taking things one step further however came from one of his co-workers.

"I was at work one day and my mate Billy said, 'chuffin' hell, you drink so much of that stuff you should change your name to Yorkshire Tea'," he recalled. "I thought that was a great idea."

It wasn't long before he had officially changed his name to 'Nathan Yorkshire Tea Garner'.

"Friends and family mainly think it's a bit of a silly thing to do," he said.

"My mum Cheryl thinks it's great. She laughed out loud when I told her."

There's a campaign at the moment to have some sort of parliament or assembly for the four Yorkshires (which, when they were unified pre-1974, made up England's largest county). I'm sure Mr Tea would support such a thing. Did you know that Yorkshire has a larger GDP than something like 11 European countries and that it won more medals than Canada in the 2016 Rio Olympics?

Are there people who believe this? The story is even more ridiculous than what he would have looked like in a frock, wig and make-up.
