FOOD fans are being asked to help Bradford keep its Curry Capital of Britain title for the fourth year running.

Tourism bosses want curry connoisseurs to vote for the restaurants they want to see representing the district in the national competition.

The public has until August 14 to vote, before the four restaurants with the most votes are chosen as the team to represent Bradford in this year's contest.

The winners will be revealed on August 18. Last year’s winning team was Akbar’s, Kipling’s, Omar Khan’s and Shimla Spice.

People can vote at Bradford Visitor Information Centre or by e-mailing

Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, Bradford Council’s executive member for culture, said: "We have held the Curry Capital crown for three years running now. I'd really love us to secure it for a fourth year in a row, but we can only do it if Bradford residents support us and vote for their favourite restaurant."
