Owner killed rat in front of horrified hygiene inspectors – Wandsworth’s Local Web site

A local food business was so badly infested with rats that council hygiene inspectors nearly trod on one while investigating safety concerns at the premises.

The problem was so bad that the owner of the business, Rajakumar Rajalingam, actually killed a rat in front of the horrified officers while they were carrying out their inspection.

The case was heard in court last week when Mr Rajalingam was ordered to pay nearly £20,000 in fines and court costs after pleading guilty to a catalogue of food safety and trading standards offences.
