PSNI attacked as hundreds of youths gather in south Belfast

PSNI officers came under attack in south Belfast as a crowd of up to 200 teens gathered on Saturday night.

Police said up to 200 teenagers were in the Markets/Waterfront area.

Bottles were thrown at officers as they seized an amount of alcohol and a boom box.

On Friday, police said around 160 youths gathered on the Blythefield BMX track off Sandy Row.

Bottles and stones were thrown at police.

Meanwhile, a group of 20-30 young people set fire to a stolen wheelie bin in the Woodlands playing fields on Finaghy Road North.

Constable McCoy posting on PSNI south Belfast Facebook page urged parents to know where their children are and what they are doing.

He said: "So if you would rather see your Police Service dealing with Burglaries, drink driving, etc then seriously ask yourself 'Do you know what your children are doing this evening?'"
