The Lowestoft branch of a fast-food chain has been forced to close its doors after running out of a somewhat vital ingredient.
KFC announced on Saturday via its official Twitter account that many of its restaurants would be closed after experiencing 'teething problems' with its new delivery partner DHL.
Hundreds of branches across the UK and Ireland have now been left without their customary supply of chicken, an issue which has affected the popular Lowestoft store on Marine Parade.
The statement from the fried chicken heavyweight said they were not prepared to 'compromise on quality', adding that some restaurants would be operating a limited menu or shortened hours.
Information about the open branches is available on the KFC website, but the Lowestoft store is omitted from the list.
