KFC has been forced to install fences on its counters to try and protect staff from customer attacks.
The fast food giant has put its initial barriers up in Birmingham, UK.
The move means the metal bars, which have a big enough gap for food to be passed through, now separate staff and customers.

A spokeswoman for KFC apologised for the barriers but said it was for the staff’s safety.
“It’s for our safety. A few months ago, a girl jumped over and hit one of the staff members,” she said.
“So they just put it up for safety. It was put up in August.”
