Rodent Infestation Found At Battersea Restaurant

March 15, 2014

A fast food restaurant in Battersea with a serious rodent infestation has been ordered to close.

Wandsworth Council took the emergency legal action to shut down the Chicken Spot takeaway in Falcon Road after discovering it was riddled with mice – inspectors saw rodents running behind freezers during the inspection.

There were also filthy food preparation surfaces some of which were covered in mouse droppings. Inspectors also found that washing up liquid was the only cleaning product on the premises.

South Western Magistrates Court ordered the takeaway to remain closed until the rodent infestation had been dealt and the premises thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.
