A fish and chip shop in Worcestershire has been crowned the best in the country at a ceremony in London.
Our Plaice, in West Hagley, scooped the award at the finals of a national competition on Wednesday.
The owners, Greg and Caroline Howard, beat off the challenge of nine other finalists to secure the honour following a nine-month judging process.
Mr Howard, who opened the shop two years ago, said he is delighted to have won the award after so much hard work.
He added: "It's an honour really, it's just great.
"We're celebrating our second anniversary on 12 February so it's absolutely wonderful.
"We've worked really hard - from the cleaner and the potato man in the morning, right the way through to the frying of the fish and chips. Everybody works so hard.
"It's a real team."
