KFC Gallows Corner is finally open – putting an end to an agonising two-year wait for chicken lovers.

The Recorder has kept a-breast of the situation at the Colchester Road site, where workmen have been seen in recent weeks, and can now confirm it has opened its doors.

The new drive-thru restaurant replaces The Plough pub, which was demolished after it burned down in 2011, and is sure to get zinger fans in a flap.

Work was due to start on the redevelopment in September 2013 but plans were de-laid.

The branch in South Street, Romford, closed in July and sent Twitter uses into a frenzy.

They seem a lot chirpier now, though.
