Jaki’s fish and chip shop in Muir of Ord has smashed windows after the owner celebrates the Queen’s death
After the footage quickly spread on Facebook, an outraged crowd of 150 locals descended on the store last week, throwing eggs and spraying the windows with ketchup, forcing the business to temporarily close.
The police were called and officers were forced to close the business due to concerns for Ms Pickett’s safety. As she drove away, accompanied by a police escort, the crowd “pelted” her car with stones and booed loudly, according to a witness.
And the store was the subject of further vandalism on Friday night when its windows were smashed with a hole created at the bottom of the large pane, with photos circulating on Twitter showing the damage.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers have received a report of damage to property in the Seaforth Road area of Muir of Ord which is believed to have occurred between 7.30pm on Friday 9th September and 10.30am on Saturday September 10, 2022.
“Investigations are underway to establish the circumstances.
Ms Pickett’s membership in the National Federation of Fish Fryers was revoked last week in response to the original social media post.
In a statement, the NFFF said: “The NFFF has been made aware of social media posts made by one of our members which are in very bad taste and completely contrary to all the values held dear to our organization and our industry. .
“We have discussed this as a board and have made the decision to revoke this business owner’s membership and we will write to him and ask him to remove any association of the NFFF from his business, social media and of its websites.
