A Thetford man spotted a group of teenagers emptying bins at a McDonald's in Thetford in their search for discarded Monopoly stickers.

The stickers are attached to the fast food packaging and can be traded in for free food inside the restaurant chain.

Aaron Briston, 25, was sat at the drive-thru of the Forest Retail Park branch on Saturday evening (April 1) when he spotted the Monopoly-mad teens riffling through the trash.

Angry at the litterbugs, Mr Briston said: 'I was sat at the drive-thru waiting to pay and I could see four young teens running around emptying every bin in McDonald's car park looking for Monopoly stickers.

'They even emptied bins looking for them at a nearby garage and shop.'

'This is something we will be looking into as a matter of urgency and would like to point out there is no evidence to suggest this has anything to do with our Monopoly promotion.
