It's National Fish and Chip Day today.

The nationwide event has been running since 2015 to celebrate an industry that is dear to many of us.

Whether it's cod and chips, battered sausage or a burger, there is always something we love on a chip shop menu.

Chippies sit at the heart of communities and those that remained open for takeaway during lockdown helped to keep us well fed with some of our most loved dishes.

To mark the biggest day in the fish and chip calendar, the Recorder asked readers for their favourite chippies in Havering.

So if you fancy trying somewhere new or want to support another eatery in your community, check out the list below.
