Meat seized by council

NEARLY 11 tonnes of meat seized from a Long Eaton kebab shop by Erewash Borough Council has been destroyed.

The council’s food health and safety team took the meat from MacDonna’s Kebabs on the Breydon Industrial Estate, because it did not meet food hygiene regulations.

Notices were sent to the shop before the team visited to stop the sale of the kebabs before investigations.

Cllr Barbara Harrison, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for the environment, said: “Our team moved swiftly to seize the meat and the kebabs.

“We then applied to Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court, where a District Judge ordered the destruction of the meat.”

The team is continuing its investigations into activity at the premises.
