The 5 Birmingham restaurants recently handed zero-out-of-five food hygiene ratings

A number of food hygiene ratings have been handed 0 ratings in June

Food hygiene ratings report on the standards of food hygiene found during inspections by local authority officials.

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

A 5-star rating means hygiene standards are very good, while 0 means urgent improvement is required.

Venues are marked on a number of factors, including the handling of food, how food is stored, how food is prepared, cleanliness of facilities and how food safety is managed.

Here are five restaurants and takeaways in Birmingham which have recently been handed 0 out of 5 food hygiene ratings.
