A Coventry fast-food takeaway has been hit with a one-star hygiene rating by the Food Standards Agency (FSA). Chicken Delight in Stoke was found to have several problems during an inspection in April.

Officials found that the hygiene measures at Chicken Delight, on Heath Road, were below par when they visited on Wednesday, April 24. Bosses were told that they needed to make 'major improvements.'

Inspectors visit hundreds of businesses each year, scoring them on hygiene, the management of food safety and food handling. Other factors taken into consideration are cleanliness, pest control and whether systems are in place to ensure good food hygiene is maintained.

Officials found that the city-based business needed to make 'major improvements to the management of food safety.' Concerns were raised over employees' knowledge about food safety and the systems and checks in place to ensure that food sold or served is safe to eat, said Coventry City Council.

Cleanliness was also found to be sub-par with improvements said to be 'necessary.' Issues were also said to have been found with the 'condition of the facilities and the building.'
