A Burger King restaurant has been given a five star hygiene rating just two months after an inspector found a 'generally poor' standard of cleaning in the kitchen.

As reported earlier this month, Burger King in Square Road, Halifax, was given a one-star rating by Calderdale Council following an inspection of the premises on April 25 this year.

The council recommended a deep clean after identifying 11 areas that needed attention, including wall/floor junctions, grouting, skirting boards, and around a drain pipe. The issues were revealed following a Freedom of Information Act request by Yorkshire Live.

A Burger King spokesperson has this week confirmed that Calderdale Council had revisited the premises on June 26 which resulted in a five-star hygiene rating.

The spokesperson said: "We would like to reassure customers that food safety and hygiene remains a top priority at Burger King UK and we are committed to ensuring the best possible experience for our guests.

"We can confirm that all corrective actions have been implemented, there are no outstanding issues and following a rescore the restaurant has been awarded a 5* rating."
