HUNGRY drivers missing their Maccies fix have mobbed McDonald's as drive-thrus in Scotland reopened. 

It's been ten weeks since burger lovers went for Big Macs and fries and while they can't sit in, motorists have come in droves to the McDonald's drive-thru on Pollokshaws Road in Govanhill.

Glasgow Times:

It is one of six Golden Arches restaurants in Glasgow to reopen today. They opened at 11am and by 11.30am, cars had filled the drive-thru lane and spilled out onto neighbouring streets. 

Cars were also seen queued from a McDonald's in Partick, trailing around the retail park and onto Crow Road. 

An eyewitness at the scene estimated there to be around 60 cars waiting in the queue for the Partick outlet.

Police were seen directing traffic at the location in the West End but officers pictured in the South Side were probably on foot patrol and passing by, according to a police spokeswoman. 

The Glasgow Times is awaiting comment regarding the police presence at the Partick location. 

The fast-food empire announced last month its plans to re-open all its restaurants for takeaway in the UK and Ireland.

Glasgow Times:

It comes after Thursday's easing of lockdown restrictions, which saw the Scottish Government drop its official warning against drive-thrus operating for fast food outlets. 

We reported last month how the First Minister took a swipe at Costa Coffee for re-opening against official guidance, asking whether a takeaway coffee "was really an essential journey?"
