POORLY performing takeaways should be forced to display their food hygiene ratings. That's according to town hall bosses who believe the move would encourage unhygienic fast food outlets to clean up their act. The call comes as the Lancashire Telegraph publishes the latest round of inspections which shows the number of establishments with zero or one ratings in the area has risen by more than 50 per cent over the last six months. There are currently 74 outlets with a low rating – compared to 41 in September 2017. Every establishment, from high street restaurants to corner shops, is given a score between zero (worst rating) and five (best rating) based on potential risk to public health. But owners do not have to display their score meaning those with the worst ratings can often escape negative publicity. But the latest ratings displayed on the Food Standards Agency website have sparked renewed calls for mandatory displays. They show that five food outlets in East … [Read more...] about REVEALED: 74 takeaways with zero and one food hygiene ratings
READER Tony Leecy was the first to wheel out the right answer to last week's quiz, which showed the former Greyhound Garage in Whalley Road, in Hyndburn. But it caused another puzzle, because what is its correct address? It's listed as at Whalley Road, Accrington, but look at a map and it appears to be in Altham West, while some readers argued it's proximity to Clayton-le-Moors... The car dealer then had a petrol forecourt and an old Ford Zephyr is just pulling away; the image must be pre- 1963, as its registration number had no prefix, which was introduced that year. Who remembers there was also a garage almost opposite on the other side of the main road? … [Read more...] about A puzzle from yesteryear; where is this?

A NEW fish bypass has been opened in a £128,000 project to bring wildlife back to a local river. The bypass has been opened at Oakenshaw Weir on the boundary of Rishton and Clayton-le-Moors as part of the project organised by the River Ribble Trust. It has been constructed to bypass the weir and allow migration of salmon, trout, eels and other fish upstream to the River Hyndburn. This means they will be able to reach habitat inaccessible since at least 1844 when the weir supplied water for the Oakenshaw Printworks. Cabinet member for education, leisure and arts, Cllr Ken Moss, has been involved with the project for several months and was there for the opening along with council leader, Cllr Miles Parkinson and members of the Hyndburn Prospects Foundation. Cllr Moss said: "There have been no salmon in the River Hyndburn for around 170 years due to the steep weir. "Studies further downstream have found salmon fry so the new pass will be very beneficial for biodiversity … [Read more...] about New £128k fish bypass opens to bring salmon back to River Hyndburn
