Takeaway shut down after vermin found

A take-a-way in Kirkdale has been shut down by environmental health officials following concerns raised by local residents and ward Councillors about vermin and the condition of the building.  An inspection was initially carried out, at Chickster's, on Stanley Road, Kirkdale, on 13 September 2017, following complaints from local residents and Councillors concerning the general condition of the building, food premises and other problems associated with waste. Officers found evidence of rats, flies and cockroaches in the food storage and preparation rooms and basement and deemed hygiene and cleaning standards to be low meaning it posed an imminent risk to health. The Council successfully applied for an emergency prohibition order at Liverpool Magistrates Court, on Monday, 18 September 2017.  Councillor Steve Munby, Cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:- "We were alerted by local residents and Councillors about this takeaway and when they carried out an inspection we have had no choice, but to have it shut down because it poses a risk to public health. We will of course work with the owners to support them to address the issues we have found and if they do this to our satisfaction they will be able to reopen."

The order was granted by District Judge Lloyd who agreed that the premises must remain closed until agreement has been reached with Liverpool City Council that the Emergency Prohibition order can be removed.
