Map: see the boroughs in London with the worst food hygiene

Kate Lloyd

A little while ago we revealed the six London boroughs that have the most establishments with below-par food hygiene scores. Now, an infographic genius has laid all that data out on a lovely map.

Using data from the Food Hygiene Agency, the graphic reveals how hygiene in schools, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, supermarkets and pubs rates on a scale from one to five (one = bad, five = good). You search by type of establishment and hygiene score to find out how many establishments got that mark in each borough. For example, we found out that Barnet has the most five-star hospitals for food hygiene. Neat.

A score of two or less means that an establishment is sub-satisfactory. The map reveals that 107 hospitals and 92 schools from across the city fell in that bracket. Plus, 25 percent of restaurants and 11 percent of pubs and bars.
