A fish and chip shop owner has been fined after hygiene inspectors made a series of grim discoveries at his takeaway.
Health inspectors who visited Pisces Fish and Chips in Boston, Lincolnshire, found broken fridges, meat stored at unsafe temperatures, cookers encrusted with dirt as well as filthy kitchen tops, floors, ceilings and walls.
Owner Yasin Nabi, 39, has been fined £2,972 for a string of offences. The restaurant is now under new ownership.

Boston Borough Council inspectors found fridges not working at Pisces on three occasions between July and October last year.
Chicken and kebab meat was not being stored at cool enough temperatures.
Nabi had "not met basic standards of cleanliness and hygiene over the course of several months", according to the council. He pleaded guilty to breaching the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013 Act.
Councillor Callum Butler said: "The public have a right to expect safe food, and we as council work hard to safeguard Boston residents' health and wellbeing.
"This case reinforces the message that we will not hesitate to prosecute food businesses that show a disregard for the safety of their customers – food safety standards are there for a reason.
"The prohibition order should serve as a warning to other food businesses that we will use every means at our disposal to keep our residents safe."
It comes after news that a gigantic five-storey pyramid dubbed the "eighth wonder of the world" is set to be transformed into a curry house in Stockport.
Award-winning restaurant chain Royal Nawaab will be opening the new eatery at the 4.5-acre Stockport Pyramid in Summer 2024.
The iconic building has stood empty for five years.
