LENGTHY queues have been forming outside McDonald's drive-thru in Ryde this evening.

The fast food outlet in Brading Road re-opened to customers earlier today (Wednesday) after several months closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

Since 11am, a flurry of ravenous visitors have headed towards the location, causing a backlog of up to 30 minutes for people using the adjacent road.

Southern Vectis services have also been affected, with routes 2 and 3 facing significant delays.

It seems that those hoping for 'fast' food tonight may instead be subjected to a lengthy wait.
