A Norfolk fish and chip shop is thought to have become the first in the country to include deep-fried pheasant on its menu.

French?s Fish & Chips in Wells-next-the-Sea is offering pheasant breast coated in breadcrumbs with chips for £5 per portion. The birds come from the nearby Holkham estate.

Owner Marcus French said: ?It?s nice to give customers something extra at this time of year, when there are plenty of pheasants around which need to be eaten.

?The goujons are high in protein and very tasty,and the meat is low in fat so it?s good for you.?
