Touts selling plastic straws outside McDonalds


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.
