A retailer from Rugeley has been found guilty of hygiene offences.
An inspection in October 2012 at West End Wines, Anson Street, found a number of food hygiene issues, including filthy equipment, mouse activity and food at risk of contamination.
Despite previous warnings from officers at the council, Lawrence Duckhouse failed to act to correct the offences and the shop was immediately closed as a result. He was ordered by Stafford Magistrates Court to pay fines and costs totalling £4192.
