A 'pop-up' pork pie shop is proving popular on its first day of opening, with queues forming outside.
Walker and Son, which bakes its pork pies in Beaumont Leys, Leicester, is planning to re-open the former Fife Fine Foods pork pie shop in Cheapside in spring next year.
But to provide Leicestershire people with their seasonal pie it has opened the store temporarily in the run-up to Christmas.
It will stay open until it sells out of pies on Christmas Eve.
Mark Birch, head of retail shops at Walker and Son, said: "Pork pies are a firm favourite at Christmas and we wanted to make sure that our customers could easily get hold of our pies.
"We came up with the idea of a pop-up shop just in time for Christmas as we know our customers may be wondering where they would get their pork pies from now that Fife's has closed its doors."
