Belfast parents urged to keep children away from planned fight in Woodvale Park

The PSNI has urged parents to keep their children away from a north Belfast park tonight following reports of an arranged fight.

The PSNI issued the warning on Twitter on Friday night, urging parents to make sure they know where their children are tonight.

There have been reports of an arranged fight having been planned on social media to take place at Woodvale Park in north Belfast.

The PSNI is believed to monitor social media with the intention of disrupting any fights that may be attempted to be planned online.

Last year one of the largest pre-planned fights witnessed by police to date took place when around 100 youths gathered in Belfast city centre.
