A NORFOLK bakery has been fined a total of £2,000 after a contaminated bread roll was delivered to a canteen at Norwich City Hall – headquarters of Norwich Environmental Health Department.

Ian Watkins of the Cottage Loaf Bakery, Hopton, near Yar-mouth, admitted selling sub-standard food when he appeared before Norwich magistrates. The bakery had previously been warned over hygiene and served with an improvement notice. In mitigation, it was said that the bakery’s hygiene systems had now been upgraded.

Mr Watkins was fined £700 with £1,300 costs.
