"McDonald’s workers went on strike on Tuesday, demanding higher wages and more secure contracts from the fast-food giant.

"Labour’s shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer joined a protest march by workers organised as part of an international movement for better working conditions in the fast food industry.

"Shadow chancellor John McDonnell was due to meet with the protestors as they arrive at Downing Street as part of a series of global “McStrike” events in countries including France, Belgium, Brazil, Chile and New Zealand."

"They are demanding an end to "poverty pay" rates and better terms and conditions.

"McDonald's said that the strikers represented a "tiny proportion" of its UK workforce."
