Murat Kaya, owner of Wellingborough Kebab House, said: "We are very happy - delighted. It is a very big event.

Murat and his cousin Ertugrul had a tricky journey to the venue due to the tube strike but made it to the awards do just in time.

The British Kebab Awards recognise and champion the efforts of local kebab takeaways and restaurants across the nation.

Murat puts his success down to providing good food and the loyalty of the customers at the shop, which has been run by his family since 1982.

He said: "We sell good fresh food. I see other shops that don't do fresh like we do.

"We have customers that come from a long way away and we have so many takeaway customers."

The top order from the shop is the shish kebab followed by the chicken doner.

Murat added: "I would like to thank all of the customers who voted for us."

Wellingborough's Millennium Pizza and Kebab in Midland Road was also a shortlisted finalist in the same category.
