RESIDENTS, councillors and the police have joined forces to try to stop McDonalds in Kentish Town from super sizing its opening hours.
The fast food giant on Kentish Town Road wants to sell burgers until 5am - four hours later than its current closing time, which would effectively see it opening 24 hours a day.
Tonight a Town Hall licensing committee will consider the application as well as the numerous objections from the community.
Sue Prickett of the Leighton Road Neighbour-hood Association said: "We would like to state as strongly as we can that we do not want Kentish Town to become a 24-hour 'open city' like Camden Town."

Lib Dem councillor Ralph Scott is also against the proposed changes. He said: "Whilst Kentish Town Road is a busy shopping area with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants it is also a residential area.
"There are no other premises permitted to open this outside the framework hours or anywhere near 5am in the area.
