First fish supper for 50 years


A SCOTTISH pensioner has had her first taste of a fish supper in more than half a century.

Kathy Kennedy, 71, from Penicuik, Midlothian has Celiac disease which means that she cannot eat anything which contains gluten and has been unable to taste the Scottish delicacy for more than 50 years.

But thanks to her local chip shop, The Tower, Mrs Kennedy can now have fish and chips as often as she wants.

Mrs Kennedy only discovered The Tower’s gluten-free menu a few months ago but said that it’s wonderful to taste fish and chips after all these years.
