They are selling battered sprouts....and pigs in blankets!

Jamie Oliver might well be pulling his hair out but according to Marie Lyob, owner of Chipmunks fish and chip shop in Silver Street, Coningsby, everyone loves the deep-fried version.

She says: “100% of everyone that has tried them loves them!”

And it’s not just Marie’s customers who are impressed.

Local van owner Shaun Harvey has even decorated his vehicle to promote the seasonal offer at Chipmunks!
