McDonald's staff 'forced girl, 14, to eat her cheeseburger meal out in the snow because she was wearing her school uniform'

MCDONALD’S staff forced a 14-year-old girl to eat her food in the snow outside the restaurant - because she was wearing school uniform, her dad claims.
Lucy Haffenden and a pal were allegedly turfed out into sub-zero temperatures shortly after taking a seat with their cheeseburger meals around 5pm on Monday.

According to a McDonald's spokesperson, all children in school uniform are banned from eating in at the branch in Erith, south London in a bid to combat anti-social behaviour.
But the move left dad Mark Haffenden fuming.
The 51-year-old said: “I think it is absolutely shocking. It's disgusting, they hadn't done anything wrong.
"We all know what the weather has been like, I can't believe they're allowed to make them get out.
"Even if there is a policy, surely they could have just said for today they can eat in - then I would have been thanking them, rather than having to get a refund.
"They told the server they wanted to eat in, so she found it weird when they were given a takeaway bag.
"They sat down and then someone comes over and tells them to leave - it's embarrassing, and really no way to treat customers."
Temperatures on in London remained below freezing for the entire day as The Beast From The East gripped the country.
A spokesman for McDonald's said: "Customers are advised of this when purchasing, and food is provided in takeaway packaging.
"Whilst there is no indication that the girls mentioned were committing acts of anti-social behaviour the safety of our crew and customers is of the utmost importance to us and the policy is therefore enforced at all times."
It comes as Storm Emma bore down on Britain today with forecasters issuing a ‘risk for life’ red warning in parts of England and Wales.
