KFC in St Albans is still shut following a national chicken shortage.

The store at The Quadrant in Marshalswick in St Albans remains closed, although the restaurants in Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City are open today.

Outlets across the UK were closed yesterday due to delivery company DHL failing to deliver ingredients.

A KFC spokesperson said: “We anticipate the number of closures will reduce today and over the coming days as our teams work flat out all hours to clear the backlog.

“Each day more deliveries are being made, however we expect the disruption to some restaurants to continue over the remainder of the week, meaning some will be closed and others operating with a reduced menu or shortened hours.”
