Lewis Hamilton in flying chicken visit to Stevenage

Racing superstar Lewis Hamilton was back in his hometown on Wednesday night – treating a trio of ladies to dinner.

The FI racer who was born and brought up in Stevenage was back in the town treating what staff said were older family members to a chicken feast in Nando’s on the Leisure Park.

Assistant manager Jonathon Davies said: “The girls were a bit flustered. He was very polite, very well brought up, one of the girls said.”

Manager Valentino Vasiliou added: “We tried to get all the girls and the rest of the customers away, they were a bit star-struck, but we did get some photographs and autographs.”

Lewis spent around an hour and a quarter at the restaurant before a car picked him up at around 8.15pm.
