The "largest sausage roll in the UK" is now on sale in Morrisons stores, and is apparently too heavy to be served in a paper bag.

The foot-long pastry weighs nearly half a kilogram and is double the length and four times the weight of some high street competitors, according to the supermarket chain.

The Foot Long Sausage Roll is freshly baked-in store with seasoned pork meat and is served on a tray specially designed to hold its weight.

The sausage roll is being launched in time for the start of the football season, but can also be shared with fellow sausage roll eaters.

Morrisons said they created the product "after listening to its customers", who said they wanted to see a bigger version of their favourite British snack.

Morrisons new Foot Long Sausage Roll is available in stores at just £1.
