A HIGH-FRYING Doncaster fish shop has claimed the world record for the largest portion of cod and chips.
Scawsby Fisheries used garden forks to serve up a whopping 33lb of battered cod along with 64lb of chips - smashing the previous record set in Boston, USA by 20lb.
Doncaster paratrooper and war hero Ben Parkinson was the guest of honour among a crowd of eager residents gathered at the event at the Rowena Drive fish and chip shop.
Martin Bilby, of Scawsby Fisheries, said: “It’s been a fantastic day. I couldn’t sleep last night but it’s gone according to plan and hopefully we’ve got a record.”
The event was held to raise money for Ben’s charity, Pilgrim Bandits. The official weighing was overseen by an official from Doncaster Council’s trading standards department.
