A shop with food direct from Warsaw has opened in Royston to cater for the growing Polish community.

Pol Stop, at The Corn Exchange, in Market Hill, offers a range of produce, including cold meats and dairy products, fresh breads, confectionery, and tea, as well as Polish specialities such as klopsiki, English meatballs, and herrings in a variety of sauces.

Owner Mirka Anderson said: "I have lived here for 33 years, and every time I wanted to tickle my tastebuds I had to go to London."

Mirka, pictured with her daughters Sophie, 16, and Caroline, 30, says there is no other competition within a 20-mile radius.

She said: "Not only will we be contributing to the ever-increasing Polish community in the area, but we also hope the English community will visit us and try authentic Polish food.
