KFC has urged its customers not to dump rubbish from its restaurants.

The fast food chain, which has so far reopened one of its drive-thrus in the Bradford district, sent out the urgent message nationally to deter litterbugs across the country.

The tweet, title ‘Don’t be a tosser’, said: “Something that doesn’t make us smile is people spoiling our communities and wrecking the environment.

“Yup, litter. So that’s why we’re asking you, with love, not to be a tosser.

“Being a good neighbour matters – so we just want to encourage you to take your litter home with you, or toss it in the bin.”

KFC’s branch at Ingleby Road, Girlington, reopened for drive thru and deliveries only earlier this month, with no news yet on any further reopenings in the Bradford district.
