Police scrambled to chippy after owner mocks Queen’s death and gets egged

Police rushed to a chippy on Thursday (September 8) after the owner – who had posted a vile video online mocking the death of the Queen – was reportedly pelted with eggs by furious Brits.

Jacki Pickett, owner of Jaki Fish and Chip Shop in Muir of Ord, Scotland was seen in a video filmed outside the takeaway popping a champagne bottle.

She was holding a sign that read: "Lizard Liz is dead – London Bridge has fallen :)."

Jacki was heard saying: "London Bridge has fallen. Woo hoo! Fantastic! Next step ladies and gents, next step!"

After the video was shared, a group of enraged locals gathered outside the chippy to berate Jacki.

Cops were called to the scene to disperse the crowds amid concerns for the owner's safety.

Journalist Alex Tiffin wrote on Twitter that police were "protecting" her and shared a video of a car driving away, which he said was Jacki leaving while "escorted by police".

Officers reportedly remained at the scene afterwards to ensure there was no criminal damage to the property.

A Police Scotland spokesperson told the Daily Star: "Shortly after 8.30pm on Thursday, 8 September officers attended at a business in the Seaforth Road area of Muir of Ord following a report of a large crowd gathered in the area.

"Officers remained at the scene to ensure the safety of all present and the group subsequently dispersed peacefully. No further police action has been required."

Social media users have reacted with fury to the clips from outside the chippy, with one writing: "Never getting a fish and chips there again", while a second added: "That's disgusting, hope nobody buys anything from there",

A third quipped: "I hope you're out of business and run out of the Muir in the month. Highlanders, by which I mean proper true Highlanders, not just by birth, but the people who chose to live here are decent gentle folk, respectful of others."

"Very disrespectful," added some others.
