The fast food chain – which closed its UK outlets on March 23 amid the lockdown – reopened 15 restaurants in the south of England for delivery only from 11am.

Yesterday McDonald’s said it will reopen 30 of its drive-thrus in the UK on May 20.

It has not yet been confirmed which drive-thrus will be reopening.

A McDonald’s spokesperson said: “We plan to reopen all our drive-thrus by early June.

“We will have a £25 order cap as we adjust to smaller teams and social distancing in our kitchens.”

Environment Secretary George Eustice said the firm’s drive-thrus were ‘made’ for social distancing.
