Wingstop has opened a new restaurant at a shopping centre in Stratford - its largest yet.

The fast food chain, known for its variety of chicken wing flavours, has opened a site in Westfield Stratford City.

The restaurant is situated on the first floor opposite the World Food Court and spans around 5,000 sq ft.

It can accommodate more than 160 customers and offers 140 jobs to the surrounding area.

Long queues were spotted outside the restaurant on its July 1 opening day.
