Leicester Mercury - - Front Page -

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.
