Once described by David Cameron as the “Oscars” of the curry world, the British Curry Awards is an annual celebration of curry houses across the country, with the UK public invited to nominate their favourite regional restaurants.
One of the biggest talking points of the night was not the curry but the booing of Nigel Farage whilst presenting an award.
Speaking to the crowd, Mr Farage said: “Thank you for sponsoring my salary for all these years, very kind of you,” prompting jeers from the audience.
