Just Eat advertised restaurants that don’t exist, BBC Watchdog probe reveals

An investigation by BBC Watchdog uncovered misleading listings on the Just Eat site.
Researchers went to six cities, selected a postcode and visited the addresses of restaurants the website brought up.
The findings included an Indian restaurant in South East London that was an industrial unit and the address for a Manchester fried chicken outlet that was a field.
Councillor Mehboob Khan, of the Local Government Association, said: “Just Eat are ­responsible for the restaurants they advertise online.”
Also, uncovered from their findings was that over 40% of the registered takeaways and restaurants had a hygiene rating of 2, 1 or 0!
