A number of fast food and cafe chains have decided to close in order to keep their staff safe and encourage others to stay indoors.

It comes after a brief period of some brands attempting to stay open with limited takeaway services amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But as concerns increase over the spread of Covid-19 - and reports of people ignoring the government's social distancing guidelines - many have taken the steps to shutter temporarily.

McDonald's and Subway are some of the latest to announce closures from Monday evening, following several others that made similar announcements over the weekend.
