A FAST food takeaway has been awarded the top rating by hygiene inspectors.

Anton’s takeaway, which opened in 1995, was handed a grade of five - the highest that can be given - after inspectors visited the family-run business on Longford Street on March 31.

Owner Colin McLaughlin said he was delighted by the news and ‘proud of it’.

He added: “Everything is prepared fresh on a daily basis on the premises and we try to give back to the community by using local suppliers for all our products.”
