A Cornish pasty that has made a lengthy 675-mile journey across the UK today reached its final destination of Newmachar.
BBC Radio’s One’s Greg James appealed for people on the route to ‘pass the pasty’ to Sarah Walker after she revealed live on air that she had never eaten the delicacy.

Mr James then launched a nationwide challenge to get the iconic baked pastry from Padstow in Cornwall to Aberdeenshire.
He asked listeners to get in touch with the station if they could offer help and undertake a leg of the trip.
Hundreds of people volunteered to help with the pasty’s journey – and even the airline Flybe offered to pitch in.
After 19 stops on its journey, the pasty finally reached Sarah this morning – with Radio 1 presenter Jordan North on hand to document the moment.
And it was clear that the recipient enjoyed her first-ever bite as she declared: “I have no words – this is brilliant.”
