BAKER Stephen McAllister has been bowled over after his pies were pronounced the best in the world.

The Kandy Bar in Saltcoats, North Ayrshire, beat 100 other bakers and butchers in the 15th World Scotch Pie Championship. It won silver for its apple tart and bronze for a sausage roll, potato pie and macaroni pie.

Delighted Mr McAllister said: "To have been given the ultimate accolade and to be able to call our pie the world champion as judged by a panel of experts is just fantastic.
