Police were on the scene at the McDonald’s drive-thru in Potters Bar yesterday evening - not for a burger and chips.

Officers received a call at 6.40pm to reports that a Ford Galaxy was blocking the McDonald’s exit in Darkes Lane.

Police attended to manage the traffic and call a recovery vehicle after the vehicle had broken down.

Other hungry customers had to drive over the pavement to leave with their food.

The car was moved by 7.40pm.

Curious eyewitnesses took to social media, wondering why officers were at the fast-food restaurant.
