A burger served up in The Fence Gate Inn near Burnley, Lancashire, has reached the final two in an EBLEX competition to find England's Best Burger. 

The Bowland Steak Burger has been named the best burger in the Independent Retail Butcher or Caterer Category and judges described it as 'particularly flavoursome and succulent'. It will now go head to head with the Coarse Cut Burger from Aubrey Allen which has been declared the best from a manufacturer.

In a first found of judging by the team from EBLEX, the organisation for the English beef and sheep industry, 23 companies achieved Gold awards and after a second grilling the two category winners were decided.

The burger which has achieved the highest score will win the title of England's Best Burger but the Lancashire pub will have to wait until the Meat Management Awards in London on 24 May to discover if the burger has taken the top prize.
