winepour Warnings have been issued to a number of restaurants, take-aways and off-licences in Medway after an operation led by the council’s licensing team working with police, HMRC, Environmental Food Safety and Enforcement teams. A number could face prosecution.

Five premises were found to have poor hygiene standards in their kitchens and one was issued with a prohibition notice because the electricity supply was found to be in a dangerous condition.

HMRC also seized more than 400 litres of alcohol from two off licences. Read More
