Burger King has responded to Gundogdu Yuzudik's complaints with an apology and said they are retraining their team to "minimise" mistakes.

Gundogdu said: "I was on my lunch break and I headed to Burger King to get a double cheeseburger.
"I specifically say with all my meals 'no bacon', and it's always been correct. I told this to the till lady a couple of times, and when I got my food, I didn't expect otherwise.
"It was a simple instruction. It's a mistake and we're all human, but it wasn't busy so they weren't working under pressure so there wasn't a reason for them to have made a mistake.
"It's just down to basic instructions. We're all human, we all make mistakes, I appreciate that."
