British gypsies are banned from every Burger King in New Zealand for scamming free meals by taking customers’ leftovers to the counter and claiming they’d been served cold food
- British tourists who terrorised New Zealand now banned from all Burger Kings
- The ban was revealed in a briefing from police who spoke to restaurant’s staff
- Staff said children yelled obscenities into speaker box and were also aggressive
- Claimed Doran family would take bites out of food, wait 30 minutes and return it
The unruly ‘gypsy’ British tourists terrorising New Zealand have been banned from all Burger Kings across the country after scheming to get free meals by taking other people’s leftovers back and claiming they were served cold food.
The ban was announced in a briefing from police revealing what they had been told about the family’s alleged actions by staff at one of the chain’s branches in Hamilton.
The family had a number of tactics to get their money back, which involved using the children as actors, the briefing said.
The Dorans allegedly also ordered their own food and took bites out of it, before waiting 30 minutes to send it back saying it was cold.

The staff also said the children yelled obscenities through a speaker box and were aggressive and rude to other customers.
The employees are not pursuing a formal complaint about the behaviour, however.
‘All [family members] were issued with trespass notices for all Burger King Restaurants throughout New Zealand.’
The now infamous family were accused of trashing a beach, leaving a cafe without paying, damaging their apartment and allegedly stealing a journalist’s phone.

Four adult members of the group left New Zealand and arrived at Heathrow Airport on January 27.
Larry Doran said his family had done ‘nothing wrong’ during their trip and called it the ‘holiday from hell’.
Images have shown members of the family standing in public smoking and spitting, some drinking Red Bull while others carried six-packs of beer.
The clan, who have lived in caravan parks across the East Midlands in the UK, became so notorious that a hire car they crashed and abandoned in Auckland was stripped by souvenir hunters.
Auckland Mayor Phil Goff previously called them ‘a*******s’ and ‘trash’ in interview on a local radio station.
‘The family appeared to use the children as tools in assisting with this, and getting them to take old food from customers’ deserted tables, then trying to demand a refund with the cold food,’ the briefing said (pictured the travellers loading into their car in Levin January 19)
WHO’S WHO IN THE UNRULY BRITISH FAMILY ROILING NEW ZEALAND?
Matriarch Barbara Doran says the family are ‘very frightened’
The matriarch of the unruly clan being hunted by outraged Facebook vigilantes is grandmother Barbara Doran, 55.
Mrs Doran has told Daily Mail Australia that she is too scared to sleep at night.
The family feel they are being ‘tortured’ by the public and insist they have done nothing wrong.
‘I’m very, very frightened, honestly,’ Mrs Doran said.
THE RED BULL THIEF
Tina Marie Cash faced a New Zealand court last week and pleaded guilty to theft charges relating to a stolen Red Bull, rope and sunglasses.
WHERE ARE THEY FROM?
The family has lived in various caravan parks around the East Midlands in the UK.
Neighbours, who claim the family lived on the Washingborough Road caravan site in Lincoln, say one of the men left the area two years ago ‘to escape trouble’.
He is believed to have then moved to a second site in Bitteswell, Leicestershire, where he lived for a brief period.
A neighbour, who knows the family, told MailOnline: ‘We are family and we stick together.
‘Everything that’s been said about them in New Zealand isn’t true. They are a good family.’
One member of the family has bizarrely claimed they are related to Britain’s 10th richest man.
