A series of incidents involving steel plates at a restaurant have been causing problems for customers in the UK.
It comes as the steel plate industry continues to grow.
The incident involving the incident involving steel plate at a Southport restaurant has been a shock to customers who have been left shocked by the plates coming apart at points of impact.
It has also been causing controversy for some customers who are concerned about the safety of their plate.
On Wednesday afternoon the restaurant posted on Twitter that the incident had occurred, with a photo of the plates on the table showing them to be unbroken.
“The plates have not come off the table yet, and the staff are waiting for it to come off,” the restaurant tweeted.
“It has been raining hard since then, and I think that’s a good thing as I feel we could have done more to protect ourselves.”
The restaurant said that it was working to identify the cause of the problem.
The incident happened at the restaurant in Southport, which has a large Chinese population.
It is the second time this year that customers have been waiting for plates to come down.
On Monday, a customer posted on Facebook that he was waiting at a table in a restaurant and had noticed that the plates were “just barely hanging on” at the time.
A woman from the restaurant was also reportedly injured in the incident and had to be taken to hospital.
The Southport Police said that they were investigating and said that the staff at the table were being offered support.
In a statement, Southport council said that while the restaurant has “already been contacted by the local authorities”, it was not “aware of any investigation into the matter”.
The council added that “there is currently no specific threat to the public”.
“There has been no incident of anyone having been injured.
It is not currently believed that this has anything to do with the steel serving plate incident,” it added.
South Coast Council is the local authority for the south coast of the UK and is responsible for a number of areas including Southport and Whittlesea.
At the time of writing the restaurant had not responded to requests for comment.
