Youth 'knocked unconscious' following organised fighting in Belfast

Police have called for an end to organised fighting in Belfast after a youth was knocked unconscious on Friday night.

A PSNI spokesperson said that the fighting took place on the Crumlin Road and asked parents to take responsibility for their children's whereabouts.

The spokesperson said that young people involved in the fighting were risking criminal records.

"Enough is enough. We had another organised fight last night. This is not acceptable, you are responsible for your children," the spokesperson said.

"We do not want to put any youth into the judicial system but be under no illusion, we will not accept this type of behaviour and will deal with it robustly.

"Speak to your kids, tell them the dangers of this behaviour before we have to, and know where they are and what they're up to."
