Breaking News ! The boss of a pizza takeaway has been slapped with a £2,681 fine after inspectors found a raft of hygiene failings - including a stained toilet seat. Jamall Khan - who ran Figaro Pizza in Halesowen - was handed the huge bill after Dudley Council health and safety visited his premises in Halesowen in 2020. Dudley Magistrates' Court heard that the Peckingham Street shop had breached 18 offences and was littered with grime and dirt on Wednesday, January 8. The deputy district judge said the one-star hygiene shop - which has since been closed - included dirty walls, floors and there was a failure to clean away food from surfaces and damaged containers. There was also evidence of equipment not being cleaned and damage to equipment. Inspectors found insufficient lighting, handrails on the stairs and a dirty, stained toilet.

He was also ordered to pay a £171 victim surcharge and £500 towards costs, making a total £2,681. Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member responsible for environmental health, said: "We would much rather work with businesses to help them stay the right side of the law and ensure customers have the standards they deserve when eating out.
"Our officers work closely with owners to guide them through all they need and make repeat visits to check progress on any improvements which have been asked for. "But this prosecution sends out a clear message, if you ignore your responsibilities and put the public at risk you could end up with a very hefty fine through the courts."
