Spending limit

The statement added that it'll also enforce its current spending limit of £25.

"We continue to ask that you limit your spend to £25 and use contactless payment methods wherever possible," it added.

"Only allowed to spend £25?!" one exclaimed.

"That's okay," said their pal. "I'll drive round twice!"

McDonald's continued: "We are delighted to be retuning to communities across the UK and Ireland, but it will look different and take a little longer. Please bear with us."
