LARGE queues have formed for the second day outside Wendy's this lunchtime as eager shoppers descend on the town centre.

The American chain opened its first restaurant in Friar Street yesterday, Reading, to a flood of fast food fans.

Pictures today show this lunchtime is no different as queues of people snake round the pavement outside waiting in the heat to grab a Wendy's.

Wendy's workers have been handing out chocolate Frosty desserts to cool people down in the hot weather.

One family travelled on the opening day all the way from Bournemouth for the restaurant opening today.

Lisa, 31, explained how the family went to Florida two years ago and Wendy's was their favourite food in America.

The number of people allowed in the restaurant has been limited due to the coronavirus pandemic.
