Chicken chain Nando's is coming to Newquay

This is The West Country: Chicken chain Nandos is coming to Newquay Chicken chain Nandos is coming to Newquay

Popular chicken chain Nando's has announced it is looking to open a branch in Newquay.

This would be the first Nando's to come to Cornwall. Up to this point the closest restaurant has been Plymouth.

Nando's is famous for selling Portuguese-style Peri Peri chicken.

A spokesperson for Nando’s said: “It’s no lie, we’re looking to open a Nando’s restaurant in Newquay.

"After success from our nearby Exeter and Plymouth sites, we feel a restaurant in Newquay will offer Nando’s a great opportunity to expand its South West region. "

He added that the company had yet to find a site and further announcements would be made once one was found. 

The 'announcement' was made on an unofficial Twitter account, which prompted Nando's PR company to make an official statement following enquiries from the Packet.

Nandos have confirmed that they are NOT coming to Newquay and that the report was taken from a SPOOF Twitter account. Lazy reporting causing those who need jobs in town to get hopes up.

I read this headline and was about to comment that this is certainly NOT news. Who in their right sober minds would want to go to Newquay in any case? (My sympathy to the residents of Newquay but you're most welcome to come and live in lovely Falmouth.) Then 'football supporter' points out it's all a spoof! Pretty lame spoof I say. Aren't spoofs meant to be funny?

Yea, I'd believe what some random anonymous poster says over an actual newspaper article any day - are you a journalist FootballSupporter? Have Nando's confirmed it to you personally?

Prat.
