It turns out your local fish and chip shop might not be covering your food with a hearty splash of real vinegar

Sometimes there’s nothing better than finishing work on a Friday night and swinging by your local chippie to treat yourself to an easy dinner – be it a piece of plaice, cod, a pie or a battered sausage.

The same goes for grabbing a portion of chips to enjoy at the end of a day by the seaside.
