A fine of £30,000 was issued, reduced to £20,000 because they pleaded guilty.

Speaking about the case Dympna Sanders, Environmental Health Team Leader, said: "We always aim to support our food businesses, however, concerns regarding food hygiene had been raised with the Food Business Operator over a number of years.
