Police seize alcohol at party in park

By David Young, PA

The PSNI has seized a large volume of alcohol after breaking up a crowd of more than 100 children in an east Belfast park.

Police officers said there was also evidence of drug misuse at the mass gathering of teenagers aged between 14 and 17 years at Belmont Park in the east of the city on Saturday night.

Police said they spoke to a number of the teens and said many of them had travelled from all across Belfast and further afield to assemble in the park.

"There was a large amount of alcohol seized at the scene, and evidence of drug misuse," said a post on the East Belfast PSNI's Facebook page.

"The dangers of such behaviour by children in this location cannot be underestimated, and we would ask all parents to be aware of where your children are and what they are up to."

The post garnered a huge response, with some local residents thanking the police for acting on the situation which had developed.
