Redbridge is one of the most improved areas for food hygiene in 2016-17, the latest figures reveal.

But the borough has also seen an increase in the number of zero-rated eateries in the last three months - from four to five.

The Which? group has ranked all 390 local authorities in using data collected by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), Redbridge coming in at number five.

The ranking considers the percentage of high and medium-risk food businesses compliant with food hygiene standards; the percentage of food premises opened but not visited or rated for risk; and interventions required that have been carried out.

Cabinet Member for Crime, Safety and Community Cohesion Cllr Bob Littlewood said: “We know we have more work to do and will continue to ensure that businesses are following regulations and that food hygiene standards in our borough keep improving.”
