A fish and chip shop in Scotland has had its windows smashed after its owner shared a controversial video of her celebrating the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

A photo of the damage to the Jaki Fish and Chip Shop in Muir of Ord in the Scottish Highlands was shared on Twitter on Saturday.

The image, taken at night, showed that the glass had been shattered and the glass surrounding the hold had cracked.

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.”

The fish and chip shop was damaged after owner Jacki Pickett shared a now-deleted video online where she celebrated the Queen’s death.

In the clip, Pickett could be seen holding a board that read, “Lizard Liz is dead. London Bridge has fallen.” London Bridge refers to the Queen’s funeral plan.

Pickett also shared conspiracy allegations at his fish and chips store, including false claims regarding COVID-19.

As Pickett celebrated the Queen’s death, she proudly claimed on her website that she visited Prince Charles’ office in London to collect an award.

Following public outcry and fallout over Pickett’s comments, the National Fish Fryers Federation (NFFF) said it had revoked its membership.

The NFFF is a trade association which represents the fish and chip industry and shop owners across the UK.

He said: “The NFFF has been made aware of social media posts made by one of our members which are in very poor taste and completely contrary to all of 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.

Newsweek contacted Pickett for comment.

Queen Elizabeth II died, aged 96, at Balmoral Castle and ended a reign that lasted more than 70 years.

His reign saw the UK transform from an imperial power to a multicultural society in a matter of decades.
