KFC has closed more of its outlets in the UK after delivery problems meant it ran out of chicken.

Its website shows that 575 of the fast-food chain's 900 outlets in the UK and the Republic of Ireland were shut as of 21:00 on Monday night.

That compares with 562 that were closed at 15:45 on Monday.

Last week, the fried chicken chain switched its delivery contract to DHL, which has blamed "operational issues" for the supply disruption.

It is not yet clear how many outlets will open for business later on Tuesday.

How many KFCs are open?
By totting up the latest figures on the firm's website, it seems 325 of the outlets were open as of 21:00 on Monday night, compared with 338 at 15:45 on Monday.

However, even some of these are only offering a limited menu or have shorter opening hours.

KFC has set up a web page where "fans" can find their nearest outlet that is still open.

What caused the problems?
Until 13 February, KFC's chicken was delivered by specialist food distribution group Bidvest.

But after the contract switched to DHL, many of the food giant's outlets began running out of chicken products.
