Whitby chippy - the nation's best

A fish and chip shop in North Yorkshire has been crowned the UK's top chippy.

Quayside in Whitby, run by the Fusco family, scooped first place at the National Fish and Chip Awards in London.

Adrian Fusco put their success down to the quality of their ingredients.

"We were commended for our sustainable fish," he explained. "We want to feel confident that as a family our next generation will be able to sell the same great quality fish and chips. We're here for the long term."

The Fusco family have been in the fish and chip business for 50 years, with Adrian and his brother Stuart the third generation to work in the trade.

Adrian Fusco, 36, added: "It's fantastic to get this accolade and bring it back to Whitby."

Over 500 shops competed for ten regional titles, which were voted for by the great British public. Loyal chip fans nominated their favourite chippy in their thousands.

The iconic site of the first Harry Ramsden's restaurant is re-opening tomorrow, but Calendar is going behind the scenes today.

It closed earlier this year, but the Wetherby Whaler group has since taken it over. A full refurbishment costing £500,000 has been carried out and the new fish and chip restaurant will still have a lot of the original features.
