The Fish 'n' Chip shop at 71 Magdalen Street was due to have its grand opening in May, but this had to be delayed due to struggles with securing a gas connection.

Today (Monday, September 30), owner Juber Ali, 32, was finally able to open the doors of his shop to the public.

Rafik Hussein, 53, who helped turn the ex-butcher's into a fish and chips shop said it is "a dream come true" for Mr Ali.

He said: "It's fantastic to be opening after months of waiting and we are hoping that The Fish 'n' Chip shop will be a real asset to the community.

"The plan is for Juber to fulfil his dream of beginning a fish and chips shop franchise and also to employ disadvantaged people and people with special needs who wouldn't necessarily have the opportunity to work otherwise."

There is also a lunch special, consisting of cod goujons, calamari, fish bites, tiger prawns, and chips and dips for £15.
