The £1 fish man was today drawn into the horse-meat scandal when a disgruntled colleague on a neighbouring stall in Green street claimed the fish he was selling were actually horses.
The colleague who asked not to be named claimed that the only reason that £1 Fish man could afford to sell fish as low as £1 is that... IT WASN'T FISH.
"It wasn't fish he was selling - how could it be? Fish should be more expensive than a quid - at least a nicker and a half - he's been taking the public for a mug. And now his fame has finished from his one-hit music wonder and he never got to the top of the charts he's come back to the market and no-one is buying from the rest of the traders. At least we sold some fish while he was in the recording studio"
In an unconnected story, takeaway owner Dave Wong denied he sold horse meat camouflaged as noodles and fried rice.
"We only use dog meat here" said Dave.
