The maker of Stella Artois and Beck's has reported a 10% drop in lager volumes in the UK after it lost out to cut-price deals by rivals.

AB InBev, the world's biggest brewer, said the wet weather between April and June left beer drinkers less thirsty than usual and contributed to a decline in volumes across the industry.
