Bouncers bounce back at KFC
Colonel Sanders and Camden Council fight back with Bouncers.
Location: 37 Camden High Street, NW1 7BU
Description: It seems that London may be becoming more and more like many of the cities that can be found in the good old U, S of A... highlighted this week by the situation facing the Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet on Camden High Street.
After recent months of crime, violence, soft drug abuse becoming common place at this food outlet, Colonel Sanders and Camden Council have taken steps to bite back!
With knife attacks, brawls and nasty incidents, security staff are now being posted at the entrance to ensure that licensing regulations remain in order and to ensure that only a limited number of eaters are inside at any one time.
If only people these days could behave...or at least eat and cook at home - Camden would be a safer place - but thank the Colonel for those bouncers!
