The Maharajah in Stevenage old town has gone back into business after Stevenage inspectors visited the premises nine times over three weeks.

A spokesman for Stevenage Borough Council said: “The council’s environmental health team served a Hygiene Emergency Notice on the Maharajah restaurant and the premises were closed immediately. Following a visit on October 4, this notice was lifted as there was no longer deemed to be a significant health risk to the public.”

The Maharajah was unavailable for comment.
