An accountant has been left horrified after finding a handwritten note inside the meat of his KFC chicken meal.
Ken Hyde, 26, who’s from Kent, ordered a two piece variety meal from a KFC restaurant near to the hotel where he was staying in December 2018.
He said he was eating a piece of fried chicken when he made the grim discovery of a handwritten note embedded inside the meat.

He immediately threw the food away and issued a complaint to KFC.
Mr Hyde said the fast food restaurant chain offered him a £7 voucher for the inconvenience, but didn’t give him a refund.
The 26-year-old, who works as a chartered accountant, said: ‘I was shocked and couldn’t believe what I was seeing.
And I was just disgusted to be honest. Especially, since the paper was literally embedded into the chicken.
The note appears to have handwritten letters and numbers written in blue pen ink
Wouldn’t expect that from a large chain such as KFC.
I took pictures and threw it in the hotel bin and complained to them on Twitter and also emailed them.
They apologised and gave me a a £7 voucher which expired within a few months, not even a refund.
Mr Hyde added he hadn’t been back to the fast-food chain since and wouldn’t ever be returning.

Ken has since posted pictures of the chicken meal box on Twitter, showing the paper note doused in chicken batter.
The note appears to have handwritten letters and numbers written in blue pen ink.
Ken posted the two photos with the caption: ‘Always nice to see a paper note embedded within my KFC chicken @KFC_UKI @kfcv@KFC_UKI_Help. What the hell is this?’
