A NUMBER of KFC stores across Ireland and the United Kingdom have been forced to close due to a shortage of chicken caused by delivery problems.

Its problems appeared to have deepened on Monday as an update on its website listed just over 80 United Kingdom and Ireland restaurants, out of a total of 900, that were open at midday. Many of those that have remained open are only offering a limited menu.

A pair of KFC employees have been accused of "smuggling chicken" in through the back door of a restaurant as the fast food giant faces a major chicken shortage around the UK.

When people realized that their favorite fast-food outlet was closed, they went to a nearby KFC restaurant which also to their surprise, was shut down.

The statement listed KFC restaurants that were still open despite the problems.

KFC restaurants in Northamptonshire and nationwide have had to either partially or fully close to customers after they ran out of chicken and burger buns.
