Finalists for the British Kebab Awards have been announced, including five in east London.

Now in their 10th year, these awards are a chance to "recognise and champion the efforts of local kebab takeaways and restaurants across the nation".

With the industry now worth over £2.2 billion to the UK economy, the British Kebab Awards (BKA) believes this cuisine has been an "integral part of our culture for decades".

Awards founder Ibrahim Dogus said: “Covid has had a huge impact amongst businesses across the country, yet many kebab businesses have tried hard to continue to provide a good service to their communities.

"The kebab industry, despite all the difficulties and challenges it faces, has continued to grow from strength to strength."

He promises that this year's awards - held annually in association with Just Eat - will be "even bigger and better than the last one".

Kebab fans can now decide between the finalists in London, the rest of England, Wales Scotland and Northern Ireland.
