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 apologized 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.”
