York market fishmonger to pay £1,672 for food hygiene failings

A fishmonger who repeatedly failed to meet safe food standards has been ordered to pay a total £1,672 for four food hygiene offences.

Trevor Douglas (aged 62 of St Peters Court, Whitby) failed to improve hygiene standards at his stall at Shambles market for a five-year period between 2013-2017 and, at its latest inspection on 27 January 2017, the business was given a zero rating with urgent improvement required.
