The day after McDonald's announced it would be temporarily closing all the UK and Ireland restaurants, people have been joining huge queues in a bid to get their last taste for the foreseeable future.

In a statement released yesterday (22 March) explaining that all the restaurants would be closing in a bid to help reduce the spreading of coronavirus.

The fast food chain said: "We have taken the difficult decision to close all McDonald's restaurants in the UK and Ireland by 7pm on Monday 23 March at the latest.

"This is not a decision we are taking lightly, but one made with the well-being and safety of our employees in mind as well as in the best interests of our customers.

"We will work with local community groups to responsibly distribute food and drink from our restaurants in the coming days.

"Thank you to all our brilliant employees for their hard work during this incredibly challenging time. We look forward to seeing you all again as soon as it is safe for us to reopen."

Not knowing when they're going to be able to get their next fix of McDonald's, people have been nipping out for one last taste - but have ended up joining massive queues as they go.

Taking to Twitter, someone wrote: "I had to take the backroads to get to Sainsbury's to buy sushi for our lunch. Thought there was a massive queue to get in to the car park but the road into the supermarket was clear. The queue was a panic-buying queue for....... #McDonalds."

Another added: "Just went past a McDonalds and the queue for the drive thru is proper out onto a main road like no joke a 50 car queue!!"
