PSNI Carrickfergus has issued a warning over anti-social behaviour this weekend.

Police say that officers will be carrying out patrols this evening (Friday) and are urging parents to take responsibility for their children.

Last weekend, anti-social behaviour among teenagers was blamed for the early closure of fast food restaurant McDonald’s in Carrick and for delaying a train on the Belfast to Larne line after conductors feared for their safety.

A spokesperson for PSNI Carrickfergus said: “Whilst many will be starting to look forward to Christmas, going to Christmas parties, visiting friends or family, wrapping presents and generally thinking of others. There will be others out there just thinking about themselves.

“We will be out and about tonight tackling the anti-social behaviour problems again. It seems that people are not getting the message that it’s not ok. There are no excuses for this behaviour.”
