A Yarmouth café was closed just before the Easter holiday when its unhygienic state was deemed to be a public health hazard.

Environmental health officers from Yarmouth Borough Council undertaking a routine inspection on April 8 were so shocked by conditions in the Tudor Café and takeaway, in St Peter's Road, that they took steps to close it immediately.

The café's owner, Joaguim Galanthe, of Lichfield Road, Southtown, was informed by the officers that the premises were being closed.

On April 9, Yarmouth Magistrates' Court confirmed the hygiene emergency prohibition order.

"When I visited the premises with a colleague it soon became apparent that the state of the kitchen and storage areas were such that to have allowed the Tudor Café to keep trading would have been compromising public health," said commercial team manager Kate Watts.

"These problems included contamination by raw meat blood."

Before the premises will be allowed to open again, it will have to undergo another inspection by environmental health.

Concerns about premises which may be endangering public health can be reported to the environmental health team on 01493 846478.
