Burnley takeaway must improve following food hygiene rating

It means that of Burnley's 136 restaurants, cafes and canteens with ratings, 97 (71%) have ratings of five and none have zero ratings.

The Ark has been given a Food Hygiene Rating of 2

The food hygiene rating reflects the standards of food hygiene found on the date of the inspection by the local authority. The food hygiene rating is not a guide to food quality.

The scheme gives businesses a rating from 5 to 0 which is displayed at their premises and online so consumers can make more informed choices about where to buy and eat food.

A rating of two means some improvement is necessary.

The scheme is set out in law in Wales and Northern Ireland but display of the rating sticker is voluntary in England.
