Around a third of St Helens restaurant and takeaways visited by officials in the latest round food hygiene inspections were awarded ‘very good’ scores.

However, worryingly, one in six of the eateries were told they needed to improve standards.

Businesses are rated on a scale of zero to five on how hygienically the food is handled; how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored, the condition of the structure of the buildings; the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities as well as how the business manages and records what it does to make sure food is safe.

The information provided on businesses is held on behalf of local authorities participating in the national Food Hygiene Rating Scheme in England, Northern Ireland and Wales or the Food Hygiene Information Scheme in Scotland.

The inspections continue throughout the year, with rating designed to provide reassurance to customers.

Of the 60 businesses inspectors by St Helens Council in January and the second half of December, 18 were handed five stars, 21 got four stars, 10 got three stars, seven two stars and four received one star.

None of the businesses visited received the lowest possible mark, zero stars.
