A schoolgirl was given a half-eaten burger from McDonald’s after she ordered a quarter pounder as a Saturday night treat.
Ashleigh Long, 11, had been waiting eagerly for her regular weekend McDonald’s when mum Victoria, 39 took her to the chain in Hengrove Leisure Park in South Bristol.
Instead of eating the burgers in the car, the pair returned home to eat the treat, but were disappointed with the result, SomersetLive reports.
As the schoolgirl sat down to eat the quarter pounder she ordered, she opened the it to find “half had gone”.
Mum Victoria said the burger looked as though it had been “half-eaten” as there were bite marks in it.

She told SomersetLive: “We are regular customers at McDonalds, it’s not nice to have to cook on a Saturday night.
“We brought our meals home, my poor little daughter had really been fancying a burger.
“She opened it up and said mum, my burger’s been eaten.
“I said, don’t be daft, then I looked at it and I just went, oh my God.”
The mum said the burger looked as though the “edges had been nibbled away” and “as if it had bee chucked away” and put back in the box.

Victoria said: “You know how you get the meat sticking out round the outside of the bun?
“Well, it was like the edges had been nibbled away, half had gone.
“It looked like there were bite marks, as if it had been chucked away and put back in the box.
“I don’t now if the bite marks were human or animal, but I really don’t want to go to that restaurant again.”
After the school discovery, the 39-year-old said she could not face eating her own meal and will probably go for a Chinese on Saturday evenings instead of McDonald's.
