McDonald's has closed all its branches in Kent for walk-in takeaways.
The fast-food giant issued a statement saying that it would have to temporarily shut its doors due to the start of the third national lockdown.
But burger fans need not totally despair - it will still be operating its drive-thru and delivery services.
It tweeted to say its dine-in and walk-in takeaway services would be temporarily closed in all restaurants from 11pm yesterday "while we review and verify any additional enhanced safety measures for these services".
It also warned: "With smaller teams and social distancing in the kitchen it will take longer to serve you."
