TWO British sporting legends will be remembered at a Duffield farm shop in the form of a tasty sausage.

The Brian Clough Banger and the Henry Cooper Sausage are being launched at Croots to coincide with British Sausage Week.

The theme of the week, which runs from Monday, October 31 until Sunday, November 6, is Legendary British Bangers.

Farm shop owner Steve Croot said: “Our butchers are very creative when it comes to designing new flavours!”

The Henry Cooper Sausage, named after the heavyweight boxing champ, features three different types of pork and a secret blend of spices. The Brian Clough Banger, in tribute to the football manager, features some Old Big ‘Ead beer from Buxton Brewery.
