The former owner of a takeaway named as the likely source of an E.coli outbreak will face charges in court.

Wrexham council says Ramazan Aslan has been summonsed to appear at the town's magistrates court on 23 September.

He will face a number of food hygiene offences.

The National Public Health Service for Wales said in 2009 that the Llay Fish Bar, Llay - now operating under new ownership - was the likely source.

Four people, including a three-year-old girl, had the same strain of E.coli after buying food from the premises in July last year.

Wrexham council closed the premises while the National Public Health Service for Wales investigated.

Permission was granted for it to re-open in September 2009, and it now operates under a different name.
