Usman Zafar, the former owner of a Winsford, Cheshire bakery has been fined £2,000 and ordered to pay costs of £700 for "appalling standards" of food hygiene.

Zafar appeared before magi-strates on 29 January and admitted failing to maintain clean conditions at the One Stop Shop on Wharton Road. Magi-strates condemned the appalling standards of cleanliness.

In July, inspectors found baking equipment and a walk-in fridge in "a poor state of clean-liness", with mould and food debris on the walls, the floor and in food storage containers.
