A mobile fish and chip van from Moray is back in business just a month after being forced off the road.
Buckie-based Codfather has been unable to tour the region selling fish suppers after an accident with a power generator.
In the days following the incident owner Colin Halley feared the van, which set up shop in Monaco for a festival last year, could be a write-off.
Yesterday the businessman explained he is currently using a temporary vehicle until a custom-made one, already dubbed the “Codfather Part Three”, is ready.
Since returning to communities across Moray the fish fryers have been met with queues of people patiently waiting for their dinner.
And last night Mr Halley thanked regular customers for their support while he has been unable to tour the region.
He said: “It’s good to be back. It’s nice to be able to get back out to see people.
“There will be a new van coming. We are just in a temporary one at the moment while it is getting built.
“Hopefully it will be ready in a month’s time once everything’s ready for it.”
In the wake of the accident in Lossiemouth staff were restricted to working out of their base in Buckpool.
However, the popular crew have now resumed regular stops in Forres, Elgin and Buckie amongst others in their temporary mobile takeaway.
The original travelling store was damaged beyond repair last month by an explosion that knocked staff off their feet inside the van.
Following the accident Mr Halley revealed it was fortunate he was closing down for the night so customers were not injured while waiting on the street.
Lossiemouth locals immediately rushed to their support by offering the staff cups of tea and blankets after emergency services were called.
Last night the Codfather made a welcome return to the town to serve up suppers for residents.
