The store, in Newcastle Road, Sunderland, has asked Sunderland City Council to be allowed to extend its opening hours.

If granted, it could soon be dishing up as late as midnight on weekdays and 2am on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Rules mean takeaways must apply for a licence to serve food after 11pm.
