A branch of McDonald’s in Sidcup has been forced to ditch its policy of banning teenagers after 7pm after a furious backlash. Managers put up a sign, complete with spelling mistake saying: "No youths will be serverd after 7pm".
SIDCUP: "NO YOUTHS" sign seen at MacDonald's in Sidcup. Outrageous! And so's their spelling! http://t.co/lcw4MBHxNN
Teenagers protested both at the restaurant and on Twitter. McDonald's apologised, and lifted the ban. The move was part of a plan to control "disruptive" customers.
