Hastings has fallen in love with Turkish food, as data released by Just Eat revealed residents order more kebabs than any other dish.

Kebab beat the traditional seaside treat fish and chips into fourth place. Sausage and saveloy also featured in the top ten.

Just Eat, the leading global marketplace for online food delivery, has found that across Britain, Italian is the nation’s favourite cuisine. However, in Hastings kebabs are the most ordered takeaway food with one out of every five orders being for this dish.

The news follows the launch of an interactive map by Just Eat that shows how takeaway habits across the South Eastern region compare to the rest of the UK:
