This rather amusing duck-shaped potato had staff laughing at a restaurant in Uppingham when it appeared in one of its vegetable sacks.

The little fella was discovered on Wednesday at Don Paddy’s in Market Place.

Supervisor Mike Wombwell, who is pictured above holding the vegetable, said: “We found it in a vegetable bag from our suppliers, and we all thought ‘that looks like a duck’!

“It’s given everyone a laugh in the restaurant.

“It’s sitting on the side in the kitchen. It’s up to the chefs if they want to use it or just leave it there looking at them.”
