Watch Jeremy Corbyn give a speech about salad at the British Kebab Awards

Kate Lloyd

The annual British Kebab Awards hit London last night, and they sound like an off-the-chain affair. First up there was a passionate speech from Jeremy Corbyn who took to the stage to present the award for Outstanding Contribution to the Kebab Industry and told the cheering crowd: 'I’m always very pleased whenever I get to any kebab shop to enjoy a good falafel. When people buy kebabs, I want them to have salad on top, so they can have the balanced diet we all need.'

Mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan also presented an award but was disrupted by a stage invader. He joked 'Can someone get Zac Goldsmith's campaign manager off the stage please?' 

There were loads of London winners throughout the night. The Best Turkish Kebab in Stoke Newington won Best Takeaway in London for the second year running; Mez-opotamia in E18 got Best Newcomer; best value restaurant went to Selale in Harringey; Customer Satisfaction went to Istanbul in Finchley and Fine Dining went to Sheesh Chigwell.
