The owners of a Hull market stall have been fined after being prosecuted for food safety offences.

The prosecution was brought by the city council’s environmental health team following an inspection of the market stall at North Point Shopping Centre in Bransholme.

Concerns were raised by a food safety officer when he visited the Turkish Delight business, which sells takeaway foods including kebabs and sandwiches.

The inspection this summer found some food items beyond use-by dates, while some food was deemed unfit for consumption as it was so deteriorated and mouldy.

The food safety officer also said the premises were not clean, noting greasy walls and a dirty floor. Equipment used by the business also failed to pass inspection, with the officer saying fridges, a freezer and microwave were dirty.

Mehmet Dogan and Sharon Dogan, of Hornsea, who own and operate the business, were each fined £400 and ordered to pay costs of £250 each. They were also both issued with a victim surcharge of £40 at Hull Magistrates’ Court.

The business was also served with two Hygiene Improvement Notices in connection with damaged flooring and inadequate ventilation at the site.
