A disgusting takeaway was hit with a hefty £6,000 fine after health inspectors found mouse droppings all over the kitchen, including on the food preparation tools and packaging.

Following a March 2022 inspection, Liverpool City Council inspectors closed Kensington Takeaway after discovering the animal waste and holes serving as rodent entry points throughout the building.

Additionally, they discovered that the restaurant lacked consistent and efficient cleaning, resulting in disgusting grease and food debris buildups.

Before closing the business in March 2022 and August 2021, Liverpool City Council gave it two more chances to make amends and actually clean its kitchen.

Inspectors were given numerous opportunities to perform better, but with each investigation, they discovered more mouse droppings and inadequate cleaning procedures.
