SHOCKED Slough Council officers found a kitchen infested by cockroaches when they carried out a routine inspection at Herbies Pizza in Farnham Road this afternoon.

A spokesman for the authority said that the premises had been shut down immediately.

She said: "Where there is an imminent health risk we take immediate action.

"We are just disappointed the management there did not take action themselves."

She said the council would be applying to Slough magistrates on Tuesday for the closure to remain in place until the restaurant had been given a clean bill of health.
