“These conditions, along with evidence of a heavy mouse infestation, left the environmental health officers with little option other than to immediately close the business and apply to the magistrates for a Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Order.”
The inspection resulted in Yorkshire Pizza being rated as zero on the food hygiene rating scheme. Environmental health officers will now work with the owner to ensure satisfactory improvements are made quickly.
