SAFETY officers made a ‘disturbing’ discovery last month when they found a man living in a shed in an unnamed Bracknell restaurant.

Employees from the Public Protection Partnership, the organisation that deals with public health issues in Bracknell Forest, made the discovery ‘during a routine inspection’ of the site.

They found the man -- who was a restaurant employee -- using cardboard for insulation but the shed has now been shut down.

A PPP spokesperson said the discovering was “disturbing”.

They added: “The officers have now worked to ensure that the shed was taken out of use for habitation and worked with the restaurant owner to ensure improvements in workers’ on-site accommodation.
