Tayyabs owner cheered by 'space' lamb chop

A video of a lamb chop being launched high above the earth has gone viral. But what does the guardian of the famous chop recipe think?

Aleem Tayyab, who owns the restaurant Tayyabs along with his brothers, says he was mildly sceptical of the plan by novelist Nikesh Shukla and designer Nick Hearne to shoot the chop into the stratosphere.

"At first, we didn't know what to make of it," he says. "The staff were extremely confused. But I said, sure - let's see what happens. It might work."
