A Devon fish and chip shop has been named the best in the UK.

Krispies Fish and Chips in Exmouth beat nine other finalists to win at the National Fish and Chip Awards.

The award is judged on a business's sustainability credentials, menu innovation, how it caters for special dietary requirements and customer service.

The eight-month judging period also included mystery shop visits and a final presentation to a panel of industry experts.
