Three Iceland supermarkets across east London fare poorly on a list of the most recent hygiene assessments in England.

The chain's stores in Gants Hill, Canning Town, and Poplar have made it onto a list naming England's 'dirtiest' supermarkets using data from the latest hygiene ratings. 

The list features supermarkets rated from zero, meaning urgent improvement is required, to two, meaning improvement is necessary. 

Iceland in Vesey Path, Poplar was last given a rating of zero.

The store was shut down temporarily earlier this year after an inspection by Tower Hamlets environmental health officers revealed "uncontrolled mouse activity" at the premises. 

A spokesperson for Tower Hamlets Council confirmed the mice "posed an imminent risk of injury to health" at the time of the closure in January.

Mice droppings and chewed packaging were seen throughout the store. 

It was reopened later that same month after health officers revisited and were satisfied the rodent issue had been dealt with.

Iceland in Barking Road, Canning Town was also rated zero at its most recent hygiene assessment.

A third Iceland store that made it on to the list was in Cranbrook Road, Gants Hill, Ilford.

This store was rated two for its hygiene, meaning it requires improvement. 

An Iceland spokesperson said: “Our stores in Poplar, Canning Town and Cranbrook Road, Ilford received inspections in 2022 and 2023.

"Since these inspections, Iceland has put in place corrective actions working closely with the relevant councils.

"These stores are now due new inspections. Based on all the measures we have put in place; the stores are aiming to receive hygiene ratings of five.”
