TACO fans in Somerset can look forward to a free giveaway this week.

Taco Bell is giving away tacos for free around the world, and people in the UK can grab a piece of the action on Tuesday, May 4.

The giveaway coincides with the quarter moon, which rises twice a month and looks uncannily like a taco (if you ask the folks at Taco Bell, anyway).

This 'Taco Moon' is set to appear from Monday, May 3 in the UK, so people are encouraged to grab their binoculars or telescope, or just stick their heads out of the window and look up.

Anyone who is able to catch the taco in the sky will be able to get their hands on a free taco the next day, by visiting one of Taco Bell's 55 restaurants nationwide.

Somerset's very own Taco Bell is located at Bridgwater Retail Park (TA6 4AB).
