Restaurants in the borough are the least hygienic in the country, a recent study suggests.
Barking and Dagenham has the lowest number of restaurants and cafes awarded the top food hygiene rating of 5 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Just over a quarter (27.1 per cent) of 177 premises received the top rating from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) – contrasting starkly with highest achiever Darlington, in County Durham, where 94.4pc of the restaurants were awarded the highest grade.
