CITY BAKERY SHUT ON THE SPOT AS RAT RUNS PAST INSPECTORS
BUSINESS POSED IMMINENT RISK TO PUBLIC HEALTH
HEALTH inspectors immediately closed a bakery after a rat jumped out from behind bread baskets and “scuttled past”.
Leicester City Council officers went to Melton Road Bakery, in Beglrave, in response to a tip-off.
They found areas littered with rat droppings, food that had been gnawed by rodents and a pile of chocolate drops that had been taken from packets, mixed with droppings.
They judged the state of the bakery to be an imminent risk to public health and issued a hygiene emergency prohibition order on Monday. This was confirmed by magistrates yesterday.
Business director Yusef Kassam Meman did not attend the hearing.
