John Lawson who, along with his wife, owns three shops in Uphall, Winchburgh and Broxburn, said: “We were up against some really tough competition so I’m absolutely thrilled to have won.

“The team has worked hard to fine-tune a pie which we hoped would excite the judge’s taste buds and I’m delighted.”
