It is war of the pasties between Cornwall and Devon.

A new book from Plymouth City Council reckons our famous crib was invented across the Tamar and that we stole the idea.

It claims first evidence of the pasty dates back to 1509.

But it does not turn up in Cornwall until 1746.

Paul runs Philps in Hayle and says it's nonsense. He said: "I'm horrified, this dates back to the miners and that is the earliest we know, and that was Cornish miners, it was known that was an integral part of their diet then, I don't know if Plymouth can go back further than that.

"It's a vital part of the economy of Cornwall, certainly in tourism, everyone who comes to Cornwall I guess tries a pasty, and obviously cream tea, so let's hope it continues many years to come."
