Another KFC branch has reopened in Stoke-on-Trent – and motorists are already queuing for their chicken fix.
Security guards have been brought in to control the queuing system which snakes around the car park of the fast-food giant’s Sandyford branch.
It comes as more than 500 branches are set to have reopened by this end of this week after being forced to shut due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Slowly but surely, some eateries across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire have been re-opening – albeit with new social distancing guidelines firmly in place.
