AN MP held a surgery with a difference, to hear what issues are facing her residents.

Jackie Doyle-Price, Tory MP for Thurrock, spent time talking to people at the McDonald’s restaurant in Lakeside.

She said: “I am very grateful to McDonald’s for letting me have a surgery there.

“We had a good number of people turn up and they had the comfort of a nice seat and a coffee while they were waiting.

“Public drop-ins complement my regular surgeries and public meetings and I hope to have more McSurgeries in future.”
