Greggs has paid tribute to the Queen leaving fans asking about sausage roll discounts in her honour.

Britain's favourite high street bakery took to Twitter to offer its condolences and thanks to the late monarch who died on today (September 8) at the age of 96.

Responses to the touching tweet, however, came largely from hungry fans eager to learn whether prices will be slashed on certain foods as the nation dips into mourning.

Someone replied: "Free steak bakes all week?"

A second commented: "Will this affect sausage roll prices?"

A third pleaded: "Free sausage rolls to assist with the troubling and challenging time?

"Please do a memorial sausage roll," another asked.

Other followers of the Greggs account which bellows "long live sausage rolls" in its bio, simply thanked the chain for its mark of respect.
