It is a battle to crown the true Chieftain o' the puddin' race.

The world's first official haggis-eating championship is to be held in Edinburgh next month.

Organisers are inviting 50 contestants to have a skinful of a different kind - in the form of ploughing through a pound of offal in a matter of seconds.

Although the Guinness World Record experts adjudicating have advised the challenge, on Sunday June 19th, must be completed in less than two minutes, unofficial contests have seen the national dish consumed in fewer than 60 seconds.
