Is this the biggest chip in Britain?

At the weekend we ran a fun piece about the 'biggest chip in Gloucestershire' and challenged readers to send in pictures of their own fry finds.

The story has so far had more than 6,000 hits.

But has the title of Gloucestershire's biggest chip about to be handed over?

Kirsty Biggs, 37, from Longlevens, sent in a picture of a chip her son James, 12, had found in a packet of frozen chips bought from Tesco.

She said: “I imagined it was quite a funny thing to read about on the website.

“When I saw the story, I had remembered we took a picture of a chip we found in a packet a while ago and thought we would send it in. I suppose it is a joking kind of competition to get people involved, an interactive kind of thing. I go on the website quite often to read the local news.

“It helps to learn more about your community and the bits and bobs about what is happening here.

“I would say the chip we had was about eight inches long, it was massive.”

Dave Keogh has also sent in a mammoth chip - but can you beat it?

    This is linkbaiting. It's lowest common denominator stuff as employed by the Mail online. It's exactly what local newspapers shouldn't be doing if they want to maintain a committed readership. However newspaper editors can see the short-term numbers gain and nothing else. Those people who truly support local news no longer exist at the papers themselves sadly

    It baffles me that people actually pay to read this rubbish in the paper.

    Oh please...... What next? Biggest potato wedge? Largest diameter of an onion ring? Heaviest chicken drumstick? How does this qualify as news? If there was a "Fun" section of this website, then this would be fine in there. News? No.
