Touts have been seen outside every branch of the fast food chain, selling original plastic straws to desperate McDonald’s customers.
Milkshake fan, Peter Thape has had a tricky few weeks trying to adapt to the meekly constructed paper straws.
Thape handed over in excess of £200 for a straw in its original wrapping, outside the Bolton branch yesterday.
‘Attenborough’s not thought this through at all,’ said Thape.
‘Saving a turtle shouldn’t be spoiling my large shake, and fries,’ added Thape.
