Yorkshire Pudding Burrito

The delicacy, a traditional Sunday roast with all the trimmings wrapped in a Yorkshire pudding, has gone down a storm in London and will now go on sale at this year's festival, August 24 to 26.

York-born Henry Preen has made a name for himself with his highly successful Yorkshire Burrito street food by taking the majestic Yorkshire pudding to giddy heights and gaining rave reviews for his simple but genius culinary creation.

To mark its forthcoming debut at Leeds Festival, Saturday night headliners Fall Out Boy and The Wombats have taken part in a Yorkshire Burrito Challenge - to wrap as many Yorkshire Burritos as they can in a minute.
