Restaurant in need of rat control closed by council officers
Council officers have closed a restaurant in Hinchley Wood after they found that the eatery was in need of rat control measures.
The doors of India Dining were shut after inspectors found evidence of a rat infestation at the property, reports the Surrey Comet.
Tony Deag, head of environmental health and licensing for the council, commented: "The conditions officers found in this case were easily avoidable."
According to the owner of the restaurant Asad Khan, the need for rodent repellent started when vermin got into the outside shed used by the eatery to store food deliveries.
He revealed that the shed is being knocked down and a new one constructed in its place.
The property was reopened four days after closing after inspectors gave it the all-clear in a follow up inspection.
Last month, a shop in Middlesbrough was closed down after council officials discovered evidence of a serious infestation of mice, reported the Middlesbrough Evening Gazette.
