A Yarmouth caf� 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 Caf� and takeaway, in St Peter's Road, that they took steps to close it immediately.
The caf�'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.
