KFC lovers are now being urged not to call the police on the fried chicken “crisis”.

The fast food chain closed fifty percent its 900 UK outlets right after “operational issues” with its brand new delivery firm DHL.

“For those who contacted the police regarding KFC being out of chicken… make sure you STOP” officers in Manchester pleaded.

Police in London joined up with them in tweeting the poultry shortage was “not a law enforcement matter” but neither force can confirm if it had received phone calls.

Followers of the fast food chain have been in the flap on social media using the hashtag #KFCcrisis to complain they were remaining feeling peckish.

Plus complaints from “disappointed” customers have already been winging their way to MP regarding Bermondsey & Old Southwark Neil Coyle.

KFC messaged that more than half the restaurants had reopened on Wednesday afternoon.

But the “crisis” looks set to continue with numerous outlets remaining closed, while others may have a reduced menu or shortened hrs.

However , one half of kid’s entertainers the Chuckle Brothers submitted a cocky tweet after he or she managed to get his hands on some poultry and chips.

Yet Paul Chuckle, 70, whose true name is Paul Elliott, got his feathers ruffled over the reality coleslaw was missing.
