McDonald's will start selling its first-ever vegan burger at selected Suffolk restaurants next month as part of a trial.
The McPlant, which is made with a Beyond Meat patty, will offer the "same great taste and experience you would expect from a McDonald’s burger", the fast food chain said.
The UK and Ireland version of the McPlant, which was revealed globally last year, is fully accredited as vegan by the Vegetarian Society.
The trial of the new £3.49 burger will start at an initial 10 restaurants in Coventry and Nuneaton in late September before it is expanded to more locations on October 13.
Here's where it will be available in Suffolk next month:
