The popular chicken shop received a 1-star hygiene from Hull City Council and subsequently closed its doors to make essential changes to its cleanliness and food standards.

The takeaway was plagued with reports of raw chicken and even one family discovering a metal wire inside a chicken breast.

As of now, the reopened takeaway is yet to resume delivery via Just Eat or Deliveroo; neither does the shop have support for card payments yet, only accepting cash.

However fans will be pleased to know that the unique aesthetic of the shop—and cheap prices—has remained the same, with skateboards as chairs and a PS2 for customers to play whilst they wait for their food.

Only time will tell whether standards have improved one year on from its last rating.

The Hull City Council Food Standards agency have been contacted to comment whether Dirty Bird will be receiving an updated hygiene inspection.
