A bakery in Perth has been crowned World Scotch Pie champion.

Murrays Bakers beat off competition from 100 butchers and bakers to win the annual competition.

A panel of judges including former Bay City Rollers singer Les McKeown tasted more than 500 pies as part of the contest organised by Scottish Bakers and the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders.

Linda Hill of Murrays said the prize was "the ultimate accolade".

The competition has been running for 16 years.
