Two fish and chip shops in Norfolk have been included in a list of the best chippies in the UK.

French's in Wells and Fishers in Hunstanton were named in the list compiled by The Times.

As part of the paper's annual top 50 beach supplement, which saw Holkham crowned the top in the East of England, it released a list of the best 18 coastal fish and chip shops in the country.

William Thomas French opened his Wells chippy in 1921 and the quayside shop has been run since 1984 by his grandson Marcus.

Queues can be seen down the block for this restaurant and the tasty takeaways can be enjoyed next to Wells Harbour if you can find a free bench among the crowds of hungry tourists.

Fishers of Hunstanton, which has been serving since the 1950s, was praised for its "signature batter" and that you can "sit on the green overlooking the sea" to enjoy your chippy tea. 

Harry Potter star Warwick Davis was spotted enjoying a meal at Fishers in September and happily posed for photos and chatted with staff and customers after enjoying cod and chips.
