Starbucks will charge customers 5p extra for its paper cups in all UK stores from today, after a successful trial earlier this year.

All UK Starbucks customers who get their drink in a disposable cup will be charged 5p, which will be donated to environmental charity Hubbub.

Customers who take a reusable cup will avoid the charge and will also be given a 25p discount, making a total saving of 30p.

The change comes after Starbucks trialled the charge in London stores earlier this year.
