MORE eateries in Warrington have received disappointing ratings following hygiene inspections from the Food Standards Agency.

The FSA is responsible for ensuring that eateries are compliant with food safety regulations.

Familiar to many, the FSA's rating system is displayed in the windows of many establishments by way of a green sticker ranked one to five.
