A Keighley butcher has been appointed to a top regional role in the industry.

Roy Dykes, of Keighley Market Hall, is the new president of the Confederation of Yorkshire Butchers Councils.

“I’ve been a member of the confederation for years, and it is a great honour to be voted in as president,” he said.

“I’m very pleased and proud to take on the role.”
