Gordon Ramsay's restaurants criticised by health inspectors for minor breaches

Two London restaurants owned by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay have been criticised for minor hygiene problems according to information released under the Freedom of Information Act.

Health inspectors ordered Ramsay to fix broken kitchen tiles where scraps of food could build up, replace split door seals and stop storing cleaning materials next to food. They also reported a washing up sink which was too close to where food was prepared, leading to a risk of 'contamination'. A spokesman said Ramsay took kitchen hygiene very seriously and that the inspectors had praised the generally high standards of both restaurants.
