For Derby, the closest Welcome Break is on the A50 Westbound which has a Starbucks takeaway store, but without KFC or Burger King.

At the Leicester petrol station, the Starbucks will be open from 6.30am to 3.00pm most days, but the KFC and Burger King remain closed.

Keele gas station does not have a Starbucks store and the Burger King and KFC fast food restaurants will remain closed.

Thirty-two Welcome Break sales points have already been reopened in recent days with eight other openings planned.

Motorway service areas remained open during the pandemic with limited facilities to support essential travel.

Welcome Break said it had improved its hygiene and cleaning processes and reconfigured the layout of its sites to allow social removal.

CEO John Diviney said: “As the blockade slowly subsides and people in the UK gradually return to work, we are delighted to open these great brands.

“It will provide a much needed boost to those on the go and support the work of Britain.

“We look forward to welcoming our returning customers.

“The health and safety of our colleagues and customers remains our top priority and we will continue to be guided by the recommendations of Public Health England at all times.”

The news came when Starbucks announced that it will reopen many of its stores to the public today.
