TODAY the Lancashire Telegraph reveals the 'scores on the doors' for restaurants and takeaways in Blackburn with Darwen – as 2019 begins.

The hygiene ratings are for takeaways and sandwich shops as well as restaurants and cafes. We have also published the ratings for hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses, as well as pubs and clubs.

The ratings are correct, according to the Food Standards Agency, as of January 1, 2019.

The council served almost 450 written warnings to businesses in the borough for food hygiene issues last year.

The tough approach reaped rewards as the latest figures show that just one firm in the borough has a zero rating for hygiene.

Blackburn with Darwen Council environment boss Cllr Jim Smith said: "We have worked extremely hard to achieve this. This is driven by the customers. It is about hygiene and people's health.

"We would urge people to go to those establishments with high ratings where the owners put them on the doors. Those with lower ratings tend not to but customers can always check the scores online.

"The council would like all food premises to be required to display their hygiene ratings.

"Our staff are working to keep the lack of any zero ratings and to get the one and two-rated premises to to four and five."
