McDonald's restaurants run short of burgers and fries as vegan extremists' two-day blockade of distribution centres 'delays 1,900 lorries' and ends in 14 arrests

Police have arrested 14 vegan activists after they set up demonstrations to block food distribution sites for McDonalds across the UK - with customers reporting a shortage of burgers, fries and breakfast items at some restaurants.

Up to 100 Animal Rebellion demonstrators blocked the entrances to distribution sites in Hemel Hempstead, Basingstoke, Coventry and Greater Manchester using trucks and shackling themselves to bamboo structures at around 4am yesterday.

At around 5pm the group, which is demanding fast food giant McDonald's commit to becoming fully plant-based by 2025, revealed police left for the night at sites in Coventry and Manchester.
