Deep-fried Christmas dinner on chip bar menu

A chip shop is offering customers a seasonal treat – an entire deep-fried Christmas dinner.

Dunkeld Fish Bar in Perthshire says its turkey goujons, battered Brussels sprouts and carrots, and parsnip fritters are proving very popular.

They are served with a giant pig in a blanket – a battered foot-long sausage – and a deep-fried mince pie on the side. The speciality supper will set you back about £10.

Sale proceeds are going to the Dunkeld community, with a visit from Santa and his reindeer planned for local children.
