These ratings come as the majority of UK businesses serving food and drink are checked for their hygiene measures and then given a rating.

The Northern Echo:

The ratings, which are mainly based on hygiene and safety, structural compliance and confidence in management are routinely updated.

In the North East and North Yorkshire, the majority of takeaways and restaurants continue to receive a three and above rating.

What each hygiene rating means

0 - Urgent Improvement Necessary
1 - Major Improvement Necessary
2 - Some Improvement Necessary
3 - Hygiene Standards Generally Satisfactory
4 - Hygiene Standards Good
5 - Hygiene Standards Very Good
