The owner of a fish and chip shop in Leicester will be attempting to bag a Guinness World Record tomorrow.

Paul Martin, who owns Millennium Fish Bar, in Saffron Lane, will be seeing how long it takes him to wrap five bags of chips.

Paul, 44, is hoping to beat the record of 58 seconds, which is held by Steph Celik, who works in Maltby, South Yorkshire.

Steph will be there on Friday to battle it out for the title.

The chips must weigh 350g, have salt-and-vinegar on and be put on a tray and bagged.

Leading up to the event, Paul has been practising his wrapping skills, with a best time of 40 seconds.

"We've been making it into a bit of a competition, I've got everyone trying it and nobody can beat me yet," he said.

Father-of-two Paul, said his 11-year-old son loves the idea of buying the book and seeing his dad's name in it.

Paul said: "I've been taking it really seriously. It will be a great thing to have for the fish and chip shop."

Preparations will be going on all day, but wrapping for the record will begin in the afternoon.
