Nando's has laid to rest fears that it may quit the UK following Brexit.

After Friday's leave result there were fears that the restaurant chain, which comes from South Africa, would be closing its doors in the UK.

The popular chain has three restaurants  in Northern Ireland.

While the UK voted in favour of Leave in the recent referendum, the majority of Northern Ireland votes opted for Remain.

The panic was sparked by a blog post earlier in the week which claimed that all branches would close if Britain voted to leave in the referendum.

As the rumours of the chicken chain's potential closure were shared around the internet - social media went into meltdown amid the rumours.


However, Nando's put the rumours to rest as the restaurant reassured customers that it wasn't going anywhere.

Nando's operates more than 1,000 restaurants across the globe, with almost 300 across the UK and the Republic.
