A branch of Cooks the Bakery in Rustington, near Littlehampton, Sussex, has been fined £5,000 in a food hygiene prosecution brought by Arun District Council after a customer complained.

A senior food safety officer from the council visited the shop and found mould on a chicken sandwich.

Chichester magistrates were told that further investigations showed food was not being stored at the correct temperature to prevent harmful deterioration and contamination.
