    Disgusting takeaway in Portsmouth closed down for health and safety breaches

    By David Brown on May 11, 2015

    The Indian Ocean restaurant in Portsmouth was recently subject to an inspection by local environmental health officers. After the inspection of the disgusting takeaway, which uncovered a dirty, grimy environment littered with mouse droppings, the takeaway owner was banned from running a food business of any kind in the future.

    Pictures taken of the disgusting takeaway reveal the full horror of the restaurant – a filthy phone used to take restaurant orders, aprons caked with dried food and work surfaces covered with mouse droppings. Owner Matab Uddin was fined £6,700 for numerous health and safety breaches and issued with a hygiene prohibition order preventing him from owning a food business.

    Cabinet member for environmental and community safety, Cllr. Robert New, said “We want people to be able to go out and eat a meal without fearing that their health will be harmed. We work with restaurants to help them achieve high standards, but if they put customers at risk like this we will not hesitate to take court action.”

    Restaurants like the Indian Ocean put the health of their customers at risk – food poisoning could easily occur. If you have suffered food poisoning after eating at an unhygienic takeaway or restaurant, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.

    Food poisoning symptoms

    Food poisoning is pretty easy to spot – you’ll usually start to feel ill within a few hours of eating contaminated food, although in some cases it could take a few days for symptoms to appear. Symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps – fever may also be present – and most people will feel very ill for 24 to 48 hours. In some cases, symptoms may persist and it’s possible that medical treatment will be needed.
