She was asked in parliament by Gloucester's MP Richard Graham if she would care to visit the area and sample some Gloucester Old Spot sausage.

Today she was at Gloucester services which sells locally produced food, including the famous banger.

It's absolutely fantastic. I wasn't expecting such a huge plate of food! But it is really lovely.

I think it is so exciting that you have all of this great food brought together in a single place, to everyone from right across the country.
