Big Mac with a side order of flu?
READER Janice Franklin spotted this fox peering at her from her garden in Belmont Close, Uxbridge, during recent frosty weather and looking for a bite to eat.

I AM sure that the majority of parents with young kids are delighted that McDonalds in Hayes and elsewhere has become so child friendly with the new touch-screen game pads. Profits must be soaring.
But McDonalds is essentially a finger-food outlet and especially so for young kids. So it with alarm that I see both kids and adults play with the new communal touch screens for ordering ‘food’ and then for playing video games whilst eating it.
Yet these screens are filthy – rarely if ever cleaned. Yet kids (and adults) not only do not wash their hands first but eat with their fingers whilst touching the screens. These screens must harbour millions of bacteria including faecal matter.
Basically McDonalds is boosting its profits by potentially infecting its young customers with childhood diseases of all kinds.
Today I saw a young woman with a streaming cold use one of the touch screens. She left, only to be replaced by a young family of children who immediately started to play a game on the same screen. Colds and flu all round anyone?
