Sri Lankan takeaway in Middlesbrough given one-star hygiene rating and ordered to improve

A Sri Lankan takeaway has been slapped with a one-star food hygiene rating and ordered to improve. Inspectors handed down the score after a visit on May 24.

Ceylon Cuisine on Parliament Road, in Middlesbrough, serves up Sri Lankan and South Indian food. It will need to make changes before council officers return if it wants to increase its score.

Inspectors found major improvements were necessary regarding the management of food safety, which includes making sure that the food sold is safe to eat and that staff are aware of food safety.

The takeaway will also need to make changes to ensure it is cleaner and staff are hygienically handling food.
