A chippy in south Norfolk is giving back to the community on Christmas Day by offering free meals.

Bailey's Fish and Chips in Shelfanger Road in Diss is offering all meals for free between 12noon and 4pm on December 25. 

Owner Cengiz Bolat has been offering it there for the past eight years and it has become a tradition in the town.

He wanted to make sure that "nobody eats alone" or "spends Christmas hungry".

Mr Bolat thinks that he will serve more meals than ever this year due to rising bills and the cost of living crisis. 

Mr Bolat said: "On average we do about 50 to 60 each year, but I think that will be more in 2022. 

"It is a tradition each year and a way to give back to our supportive customers."

Mr Bolat also offered a free meal of sausage and chips at Halloween to those who came in fancy dress.
