Animal rights protesters say they are blockading four McDonald's distribution centres in the UK to stop deliveries to the fast-food chain's 1,300 UK outlets.

Some stores in the country have closed, but the branches in Lynn remain open, with a limited menu, a staff member from the high street branch has confirmed.

The West Lynn branch however, have confirmed they have had no distribution issues.

Animal Rebellion activists were using trucks and bamboo structures to stop lorries leaving depots in Hemel Hempstead, Basingstoke, Coventry and Heywood, Greater Manchester.

Animal Rebellion wants McDonald's to commit to becoming fully plant-based by 2025.

The group who is in solidarity with Extinction Rebellion, posted to Twitter saying: "Industrial meat and dairy production led by companies such as McDonald's are destroying the planet."

They also posted a video of their protest and said they had "shut down all four of the distribution centres serving 1300 restaurants".

A spokeswoman said: "Our distribution centres are currently facing disruption. We are assessing the impact on deliveries to our restaurants and to menu items. We apologise to our customers for any disappointment caused."
