If you're a Scot, look away now... haggis was invented by the English

For centuries it has been a symbol of Scotland alongside tartan, bagpipes and whisky.

But haggis is actually an English creation, a food historian has discovered.

The claim has sparked a fierce backlash from proud Scots who eat the dish every January to celebrate the poet Robert Burns, who wrote in praise of 'the great chieftain of the puddin' race'.

Food historian Catherine Brown has found mentions of haggis in an English cooking guide from 1615 which proves it was being eaten south of the border some 171 years before Robert Burns wrote his Address to the Haggis.

The experiment has worked. Vermin has been succesfully attracted like a fly to flypaper.
