A chip shop in Northampton has won a regional honour in Food Awards England 2015.

Duston Village Chippy won the Chronicle & Echo’s Chip Shop of the Year award in 2014 and has now gone one better by winning the Midlands Best Take Away category in the national awards.

Simon Hoang, who runs the chip shop, said: “We are all so proud.

“We were up against some fine takeaway establishments and to walk away with the title was fantastic, especially as thousands of people applied.

“To make the shortlist was a great accomplishment itself but to win the Midlands best takeaway title was fantastic. We would like to thank all of our loyal customers for their continued support,” he said.
