Commenting after the presentation, Lauren Morgan said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win this fantastic Award and become this year’s UK Supreme Sausage Champion. We also won the West Midlands Traditional sausage category so it is a double celebration.”

Darren Morgan stated he is: “Honoured and proud to have won in great company”
