A UK family has been called out online for leaving a "disgusting mess" for restaurant staff to clean up, according to the Sun.

The messy diners were shamed on Facebook for leaving food, sauce packets, napkins, menus and upturned cups all over the booth, chair and floor of the Colchester restaurant in Essex last week.

"It is NOT okay to go out to dinner and walk away from your table – leaving it in a state like this for somebody else to clear up.

"This is what happened in Harvester Colchester tonight. The poor young girl left with this disgusting mess didn't know where to start."

Harvester is a restaurant chain with over 200 outlets throughout the UK.
