E.coli scare chip shop was 'zero' rated

  • Comment

A chip shop at the centre of a suspected E.coli outbreak received a ‘zero’ rating when it was inspected by council hygiene staff a year ago.

The Llay Fish Bar in Llay, in Wrexham was due for another check this month, according to the Press Association.

Wrexham County Borough Council gave the the takeaway “zero stars” out of a maximum five in August 2008 and its report said: “Poor hygiene conditions found. Some major non-compliance with food legislation.”

On 30 July, the premises were closed after four people fell ill - a woman and a three-year-old girl both suffered renal failure.

The child is in Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool where her condition is described as serious.

The woman, Mrs Morrisroe-Clutton, 32, who gave birth to her son Oliver 11 weeks ago, is being treated in Wrexham Maelor Hospital where she is in a medically-induced coma.
