Safety warning at Barnsley takeaways

Have your say

A NUMBER of takeaways in Barnsley have not adequately maintained their gas appliances and pipework, putting staff and customers in danger, a council inspection has discovered.

Officials are visiting all 160 hot food takeaways in the district to check they are safe.

Barnsley Council said it has issued ‘a number of remedial notices’ to almost three-quarter of the premises ordering them to improve or they will be forced to close down.
