A PROUD butcher from Belper is celebrating after winning an award for his tasty black pudding.
Tim Howarth, of Jerry Howarth Butchers, entered the International Competition for the Best Black Pudding, which is held in Mortagne au Perche, France.
He won a bronze award in the Best Grilling Black Pudding category.
Tim dedicated the win to his dad, Jerry, who died three years ago.
“It was the first time I’ve entered since he died,” said Tim. “He had been entering the competition since the 1970s, although we hadn’t entered since about 2002.
“I am chuffed to bits. My dad had a lot of success in this competition.”
