Three Heckmondwike takeaway owners have been prosecuted for selling lamb curries which were actually made from beef.

Zishan Shafiq, 26, who owns the Pioneer Restaurant and Takeaway in Dewsbury with his brother Mohammed Nohman Shafiq, 29, bought the meat when he discovered lamb was much more expensive.

And Adnan Altaf Butt, 37, who co-owns Taj’s Asian Cuisine in Batley, ordered ‘meat’ from his supplier and sold it as lamb curry without checking what meat it was.
