You can grab a free Costa Coffee from Costa Express machines today - so where are they in County Durham and what can you get?

To mark International Coffee Day on October 1 2019, the cafe chain is offering a free Costa Coffee to the public.

But the free Costa Coffee offer won't be available from Costa stores: it's only from the Costa Express machines. These are the coffee machines that you find across County Durham in places such as petrol stations, supermarkets and leisure centres.

The machines won't be taking money, so everything should be available when you grab your free Costa Coffee, including syrups and shots.
