Chicken burgers cost trader £4,000

19 August 2011

A takeaway chicken shop trader has been fined more than £4,000 for selling food after hours following an Ealing Council prosecution

Shanawar Majid Chaudhry, owner of XFC, 151 The Broadway, Southall, UB1 1LP was found guilty of two offences at Ealing Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 4 August 2011. Mr Chaudhry was ordered to pay £1,000 for each offence, £2,000 towards the council’s costs and £15 victim charge.

The council’s Regulatory Services officers visited the fast food restaurant in October and November last year and were sold hot food after hours on both occasions. The outlet is not licensed to sell late night refreshments and food between 11pm and 5am under the current licence.

Councillor Ranjit Dheer, cabinet member for Community Services and Safety, said: “We set out clear rules for food traders in their licence and expect them to operate within them. Our officers will continue to work closely with businesses to advise them, but will take action against anyone caught breaking their licence conditions, or worse still, not having a licence at all.”
