Uncomfortable to watch: Police slam young concert goers for Belfast motorway madness

Police hit out at young concert goers for risking their lives on a Belfast motorway.

DJ Ben Nicky played what he described as the "biggest headline show of his career" at Belfast's Custom House Square on Saturday ngiht.

Over 7,500 tickets were sold for the concert.

However, police said revellers leaving the show risked their lives by walking on the M3. One officer said it was "uncomfortable to watch" a youth seemingly oblivious to a coach stopping behind him as he walked along the middle of the carriageway.

"I'm sure many people enjoyed Ben Nicky at Custom House Square," said a PSNI officer.

"However what is not enjoyable, is receiving reports of young people walking along the motorway.

"One individual decided to walk up the centre of the M3. This was very uncomfortable to watch on CCTV. This person, was oblivious to the coach, that stopped just in time behind them.

"Motorways are not for pedestrians. Folks in future please sort your lift home before the evening end."
