Safety officials have prosecuted an East Hull takeaway after it scored zero points in a food hygiene inspection.

Hull magistrates heard on September 25 that the local authority’s environmental health team employed emergency powers to immediately shut Holderness Road’s Moon River Chinese takeaway in January.

The court fined Ying Ni, of Moon River, £750.

It also ordered her to pay £500 costs plus a £75 victim surcharge after she admitted guilt on all food safety fault charges.

Hull City Council found hygiene conditions so poor that it gave the establishment no marks out of a possible five, a rating which means that urgent improvement is necessary.

Officers uncovered dirty equipment and kitchen structure plus a severe danger from cross-contamination of raw meats in addition to an absence of workers wearing protective clothing.

The takeaway was shut while remedial works were undertaken.

Hull Council says that Mrs Ni has since followed its safety officers’ advice.

Its most recent unannounced inspection at Moon River saw a “good” rating of four out of five – a “significant” improvement.
