Crowds of youths pictured at Crawfordsburn Country Park in Co Down despite Covid-19 fears

Families of all ages yesterday replaced the crowds of youths that had gathered at a Co Down beach and who "left a trail of chaos" just a day earlier.

One witness said up to "1,000" youths had congregated on Crawfordsburn Beach on Monday as people enjoyed the scorching day.

This came just days after the PSNI warned against gathering in large crowds at beauty spots due to Covid-19.
