Entire safety team drafted in to remove £2,000 of food from store
THE closure of Yorkshire Pizza comes just a few weeks after Hull City Council's environmental health officers shut Polish store Vars.
The store at 540 Hessle Road had its contents seized for destruction after a mouse infestation.
The entire food safety team had to be drafted in to remove all the produce, with £2,000 of food destroyed.
The store, owned by Jelena Grinevica, was inspected in January by two environmental health officers.

Officers found signs of an extensive and established mouse infestation where food was stored, as well as in the main shop.
Mouse droppings were found throughout the premises and one dead mouse was discovered.
Numerous packs of food had been damaged by chewing and officers noticed a detectable odour of mouse urine on the food.
In order to protect public health, the shop was formally closed with the service of a hygiene emergency prohibition notice and the food was seized.
The council contacted Ms Grinevica in a bid to work with her so she can reopen the store.
