Fusion Foods in High Street won in the 'best takeaway' category at the annual awards ceremony in London.

The takeaway is the second business which owner Gyash Uddin has opened in the town. He said: "It's a great location on the corner of a junction and I snapped it up after the previous business closed.

"We opened in January and things have just got better and better."

The business employs eight staff, serving up to 60 meals on a weeknight and up to 90 on weekends within a three-mile delivery zone. Chef specials include king tandoori prawn and Fusion special biryani.
