A new butchers looks to be doing great business as a string of customers line up to buy sausages, steaks and fresh bacon during its first week’s trading.

Humphrey’s of Saffron Walden opened on the site of former butchers Meat Inn on Saturday, August 9.

Owner Paul Humphrey said: “I’m pleased it’s come up looking nice and bright after all the effort the boys put in.

“Braintree is a lovely, busy town and I think people like having a butchers here so hopefully it will work well.”
