Huge queues have formed outside McDonalds drive-thrus as another 168 restaurants opened across the country.

Police were called in to direct queues, with many disappointed customers being turned away due to high demand.

Hundreds of cars were seen clogging roads around some of the fast food giant’s locations, with rows of cars stretching for miles.

168 drive-thus were reopening today along with a further 22 branches for delivery. Overall some 924 Drive Thru restaurants will reopen between 2 June and 4 June while 75 new restaurants will reopen for McDelivery through either Uber Eats or Just Eat.

Announcing the changes, McDonald's said: "This is only possible following the hard work of the teams in our 44 pilot restaurants.

"Over the last fortnight, our employees, franchisees and suppliers have worked tirelessly to implement new procedures to enable safe working so that we can now help all parts of the UK and Ireland to enjoy the return of the Big Mac."

The restaurant also explained the security measures that will be put in place to protect staff and customers.

"Face coverings, gloves, Perspex screens and new safety and hygiene processes mean it will look different, it will take a little longer and as we have seen in the pilot restaurants, we expect demand will be high," McDonald's added.

"Please bear with us, we will continue to put our people first – their safety is our priority."

"With smaller teams, we will still be offering a limited menu over reduced hours, and we ask that you make contactless payments and limit your spend to £25," they said.
