The manager of a petrol station in Witcham Toll is to face trial over allegations that her premises were infested with mice.
Rozina Hafiz, of Saunders Close, Huntingdon, is facing multiple counts of breaching food safety regulations after environmental health officers say they found evidence of rodent contamination at the Jet petrol station, in Ely Road.
Appearing at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, Ms Hafiz denied eight counts of breaching the food safety regulations and a further eight counts in her role as manager of the Jet garage.
The charges relate to visits by environmental health officers to the premises in December 2013 and February 2014.
Maggie Camp, prosecuting for East Cambridgeshire District Council, said evidence of mouse excrement had been discovered near food items and other items showed evidence of having been gnawed by the rodents.
