British takeaway 'caught grilling chicken with blowtorch' on a trolley

British takeaway 'caught grilling chicken with blowtorch' on a trolley

"F**ing hell, I'm not eating that!"

Blowtorch-fried chicken, anyone?

Wild footage has shown a takeaway worker preparing raw chicken using a blowtorch in a dirty alleyway behind a shop and it must be seen to be believed. Watch the shocking footage below:

The odd clips, which will turn your stomach, were filmed in Middlesbrough and shows the moment the man was caught red (or shall we say blue) handed.

In the now-viral clips that are circulating on Twitter, a lad walks through the alleyway and almost left speechless as he films the chef’s DIY method to grilling chicken.

“F***ing hell,” he says to himself, as the takeaway worker notices the camera while holding a pipe connected to a propane gas tank.

The raw chickens are placed in a trolley not far away from bins and unidentified rubbish on the ground. A mere piece of cardboard has been placed underneath the raw chickens, presumably to catch any of the fluids or liquids from the meat.

At the least the guy is wearing an apron and blue gloves - yes we're grasping at straws here.

They say you are what you eat, which should come as no surprise when the guy says: “F***ing hell, I'm not eating that!’

The second clip is just as grizzly, with pieces of raw chicken dumped at the bottom of an abandoned shopping trolley.

Middlesbrough Council has now said that it is aware of the perplexing video, which was filmed in the busy Parliament Road.

Food safety officers have also reportedly visited the unnamed takeaway after the video spread across the web.

A spokesperson for the council said: "We are aware of the video circulating online and are looking into the matter.

"As a matter of course we expect all food processes to be carried out in a safe and hygienic manner."

Both clips led to a huge reaction on social media, with Twitter users tagging the council to take action and their friends to witness the craziness unfold.

One person, who is familiar with the area, tweeted: "Lived there for 2 years and I’ve never seen so many people spewing on the way home after a night out, ever. Then got introduced to a chicken parmo. That must be how they prep the meat for them. Solved the question of the barf-a-rama."

Social media users couldn't believe what they were seeing.

Another social media user quipped: "I wouldn’t go near Middlesbrough anyway so think I’m ok."

"Looks OK to me. Flame grilled, what's the issue?" a third person joked - or at least we hope they're joking.

While a fourth person chimed in: "This is so wrong on so many levels."

LADbible has approached The Foods Standards Agency and Middlesbrough Council for comment.
