A CURRY house owner is getting hot under the collar over roadworks blocking his premises in London’s famous Brick Lane.
Passers-by looking for a place to eat have to walk round the obstruction with the pavement blocked and a deep trench in the road.
A travel agent’s and clothes shop are also affected.
“We didn’t get any warning,” said Moonlight restaurant boss Nurul Miah.

Only a narrow path leads to the restaurant and travel agent’s before it is cut off by barriers covered with blue tarpaulin.
Now an angry Mr Miah is protesting to the utility company and is taking advice about compensation.
Meanwhile, he says there’s no money coming in for staff wages.
