Papa's battered away the competition to become the first restaurant in the world to send a portion of fish and chips into space.

The chippy celebrated being crowned Britain's favourite Fish and Chip restaurant earlier this year so they wanted to shoot their haddock and chips into the stratosphere.

Based in Hull, East Yorks., Papa's decided it was time to 'plaice' their name in the record books by strapping the feast into a box and tying it to a weather balloon.

Dino Papas, who runs the award-winning fish and chip shop, alongside his brother, George, and dad, Sid, said: "Today Papas has shown it is truly out of this world.

"We've tried to play it down a bit, as we heard rumours some people down south were going to do it first, but we are looking forward to being the first."
