CLYDESDALE’S butchers and bakers will be hoping for more success at this year’s World Scotch Pie Championships, which are being held on Wednesday.

Bay City Roller Les McKeown will be hosting the event, held this year in Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld.

Les said: “Being a judge again this year is a huge honour and I am looking forward to congratulating all the winners.”

The competition is supported by Scottish Bakers and the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders.

In addition to Scotch pies, bakers and butchers are invited to enter their best sausage rolls, bridies, specialty savouries, Scottish football pie, apple pie or savoury.
