A furniture store has won the top award at an annual ceremony.

The 188-year-old Fishpools in Waltham Cross won "Member of the Year" of Associated Independent Stores (AIS), an independent buying group whose suppliers vote for the winner each year.

Managing director Simon Fishpool said: "It’s great to be recognised for this award.

"As an independent retailer, we always try to offer more for both our customers and suppliers, so to know these efforts are making a difference is fantastic."

The store was established in 1899 and is now run by a fourth generation of Fishpools.
