British Sausage Week 2012 arrives in Birmingham later today and comedian and stand-up star Al Murray 'The Pub Landlord' will be putting eight local butchers through their paces to find the region's best banger.
He'll be judging a cook-off alongside the British Sausage Appreciation Society at the Pub du Vin in the city centre this afternoon.
The eight butchers from the West Midlands have been shortlisted from hundreds of entrants, and will each battle it out this afternoon to win prestigious British Banger Award.
