Fishy smell at chippy

Date 7 Nov 2006

The owner of a fish and chip shop is being investigated because his shop smells of… fish and chips. Environmental health officials in West Yorkshire wrote to Steve Morton of the New Scarborough Fisheries in Wakefield to say they were investigating an "odour from the extract ventilation system," reports the Sun. He was told: "We are investigating a smell of fish and chips."

Mr Morton said: "You'd think they'd twig that a fish and chip shop smells of fish and chips. It's absolutely crazy. “Does the council want me to pay someone to stand outside with an air freshener?" A council spokesman said: "We have a duty to investigate complaints."
