Fast food chain uses bouncers to deter yobs
McDonald's bosses say they will keep employing bouncers hired to deter yobs who have plagued their Windsor town centre restaurant.
The fast food giant hired doormen about two months ago to stand guard at the Thames Street site on Friday and Saturday evenings and said the atmosphere has now greatly improved.
Police said numbers of loutish incidents are down since a dispersal order was introduced before Christmas, around the same time the McDonald's bouncers were hired.
McDonald's spokesman Alison Purves said the company decided to act because youths had been loitering inside and outside the premises and intimidating customers.
She added that the reduction in yobbery since the doormen were introduced proved the 'system was working' and that 50 other restaurants in the chain of 1,250 UK outlets also used bouncers.
