Trouble at McDonald’s

By Staff Reporter

Police had to be called to a fast food restaurant in Newtownabbey at the weekend after an altercation between rival groups of young people . The incident happened in the McDonald’s drive through restaurant at the Abbey Centre early in Sunday morning. It is believed young people from Bawnmore and Rathcoole were involved in a fight and a number were injured.

Local Sinn Féin councillor Gerry O’Reilly called on young people to be aware of their personal safety.

“This has been a serious incident and young people have been injured here,” he said.

“There has been a lot of cross community work in the area and it is sad there has been a breakdown.”

A PSNI spokeswoman said: “Police received a report of a disturbance at commercial premises in the Longwood Road area, Newtownabbey at approximately 9.15am on Sunday, 25 March. Police enquiries are continuing.”
