McDonald's restaurants in the UK will be phasing out the use of plastic straws.

Their chief executive Paul Pomroy revealed to Sky News that they are fulfilling a request by their customers.

 "Customers have told us that they don't want to be given a straw and that they want to have to ask for one, so we're acting on that."

"Straws are one of those things that people feel passionately about, and rightly so, and we're moving those straws behind the front counter."

 "The other thing we're looking to do is to move to recycled paper on the straws and biodegradable paper straws and that test, I'm really proud to say, will start next month."
