Police are investigating after reports of a woman verbally abusing buskers and damaging their equipment in Belfast city centre on Saturday.

Video circulating on social media shows a woman going up to busker in Donegall Place, shouting verbal abuse and attacking their equipment.

Another incident on Royal Avenue was reported to police around 1.30pm on Saturday.

Both incidents were carried out by a blonde haired woman matching a similar description.

Chief Inspector Peter Brannigan said police are working to establish if there is a link between these and other third party reports regarding two other incidents in the city centre on Saturday afternoon.

A witness reported seeing an altercation, possibly involving the same woman and an unknown male, close to the library end of Royal Avenue.

It’s also believed that a vehicle was struck with a piece of wood by a woman on Howard Street.

"We are keen to hear from anyone who can help us with our enquiries and to establish the precise circumstances of the incidents. Police can be contacted on 101,” Chief Inspector Brannigan said.
