These are the south east London restaurants, takeaways and shops that have been told they need major improvements by hygiene inspectors.

The details, correct as of June 27, have been published on the Government’s Food Standards Agency website.

Inspectors check the following three elements:

-How hygienically the food is handled – how it is prepared, cooked, re-heated, cooled and stored

-The condition of the structure of the buildings – the cleanliness, layout, lighting, ventilation and other facilities.

-How the business manages what it does to make sure food is safe and so that the officer can be confident standards will be maintained in the future.
