A 90-year-old chip shop worker from Dumfries and Galloway is thought to be the world's longest-serving chip shop worker.

Bettina Dawson, who still works six nights a week, has served around half a million fish suppers in her 77 years of working at The Moffat Chippy.

Mrs Dawson started helping her parents out behind the counter in 1936 and apart from working at a munitions factory during the second world war, she has worked there ever since.
