Health inspectors have forced a Vietnamese restaurant in east London to close after finding a dead rat under the cooker and droppings spread around the kitchen.
Environmental Health Officers carried out a routine inspection of Cu Tu in Dalston last Friday and found:
Rat droppings on the floor, on food packaging and shelving
Gnawed packaging and scraps of nesting material
The kitchen was filthy with encrusted dirt and grime
Cu Tu was ordered to pay Hackney Council £620 in court costs and will stay closed until the council is satisfied the risk to the public is removed.
