...I'm going to get a refund on this. This is McDonald's in Beckton, with maggots lying around.

...They're all over the floor....

A McDonald's spokesperson said: ...Unfortunately, an incident occurred today at our restaurant in Beckton and we would like to apologise to any customers who were impacted.

...The restaurant was immediately closed, and a thorough investigation has found the root cause which has now been resolved.

“The restaurant remained closed throughout the day for the investigation and we brought in external specialists to carry out a deep clean.

...It will remain closed tomorrow as a precaution and for further cleaning.

...We have worked closely with our pest prevention company during this process.”

This comes as a McDonald's branch was shut down after mice were discovered in the kitchen by health inspectors.

Customers at the outlet in Leytonstone, East London, were asked to leave when Environmental Health officers found rodents and hundreds of droppings.

Officers discovered a dead mouse in a storage cupboard as well as surfaces of the fast food chain restaurant being covered with mice poo.

Waltham Forest Council sent food inspectors to the site following a customer complaint about rodents in the restaurant.

Inspectors also found a bacon slice and other food debris on the filthy floor.


Councillor Clyde Loakes, who oversees food hygiene in the borough, said: ...Customers need to be able to dine in confidence and safety and we will not hesitate to act when businesses do not meet their responsibilities.

...Mice carry a range of diseases which can infect humans and cause real harm.

...I am glad that McDonald’s has acknowledged their failings in this incident and are cooperating with Council officers....

McDonald’s has agreed to pay Waltham Forest Council’s full costs of £1,821 for the formal closure action.

A Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Order was granted by Thames Magistrates Court against the branch on Thursday, which means the restaurant cannot open until it is completely a rodent and risk-free zone.

It is believed to be the first case of its kind against the fast food chain in more than 20 years.
