A fish and chip shop in Warwick has been named as one of the top shops in the country.

The Chip Shed in West Street has been shortlisted for the national fish and chip awards.

The first round of the awards narrows down thousands of shops from across the country to create a shortlist of just 60 - which Warwick's The Chip Shed has been named in.

The shortlist is for the National Fish and Chip Awards 2020 and the final list and awards ceremony will be taking place in London in January 2020.
