Nottinghamshire Police are investigating after a group of up to 50 teenagers stormed a branch of McDonald’s in Nottingham’s city centre.

Videos circulating on the internet appear to show the group, who are thought to be aged between 14 and 16, jumping over the counter in the restaurant and stealing food. They are also seen stealing soft drinks as others film the events on their mobile phones.

The event occurred around 9pm on Sunday 21st August at the Clumber Street branch in Nottingham city centre.

Police say that after the majority of the group had left the shop, about 20 remained who were abusive and threatening towards staff.

A spokesperson for McDonald’s told LADbible: “We’re aware of an incident that took place at our Clumber Street restaurant on Sunday night. We were shocked and appalled by the incident which has absolutely no place in our restaurants.
