Brits wait HOURS for Deliveroo orders as drivers fail to turn up while snow causes chaos on the roads | The Sun

BRITS were left starving this morning after snow forced Deliveroo drivers off the road, unable to deliver breakfasts.

Fury erupted online as scores of customers said they had been left in the lurch for up to "3.5 hours" for their brekky to arrive.

And others got 'hangry' as they claimed Deliveroo had taken their money but failed to show up with food.

While some starving souls lashed out complaining of a message that claimed their food had been delivered even though it hadn't.

One livid Brit fumed: "Hello @Deliveroo am I going to get my food or nah? Cos I've ordered food and still waiting for it to be confirmed by the restaurant…"

While another starving customer chastised fellow delivery service UberEats, blasting: "WTF @ubereats_uk “no couriers nearby”??? STILL."

But others raised concerns over driver safety, with one claiming to have witnessed a rider fall of his bike in the snow on Sunday night.
