The owner of a kebab house in Ingoldmells has been order to pay a total of £5,740 after admitting food safety offences.
Appearing in Lincoln Magistrates Court on October 29 Atif Sudizail, the owner of the Bombay Kebab House, pleaded guilty to five breaches of food hygiene regulations, which were identified during a routine inspection by an East Lindsey District Council food safety inspector.
Offences included the premises and food equipment not being kept clean; food equipment not being in good repair and condition; food handlers not maintaining a high degree of personal cleanliness; and documented food safety systems not being effectively implemented and monitored.
Mr Sudizail had previously been issued with a Home Office caution in August 2014 for similar offences.
The magistrate fined Mr Sudizail a total of £3,000 for the offences committed and awarded £2,500 in costs to the district council. Mr Sudizail was also ordered to pay a £60 community charge and £180 in court costs.
Environmental health manager at East Lindsey District Council, Mike Harrison, said: “This case sends a very strong message to the owners of all food businesses in East Lindsey that food hygiene standards must be maintained at all times.”
