    A grim takeaway was hit with a whopping £6,000 fine after health inspectors discovered the kitchen was littered with mouse droppings on food preparation equipment and food packaging.

    Liverpool City Council inspectors shut Kensington Takeaway immediately after finding the animal waste – as well as holes that acted as entry points for rodents throughout the premises in a March 2022 investigation.

    They also found the restaurant lacked regular and effective cleaning, leading to sickening build-ups of grease and food debris.

    Shockingly, this was not the first time the city was forced to shut the takeaway down for its poor hygiene.

    Liverpool City Council gave the business two more chances to change its ways and actually clean their kitchen before shutting it down in March 2022 and August 2021.

    Despite being given several chances to improve, inspectors continued to find mouse droppings and poor cleaning protocols during each investigation.
