McDonalds forced to pull the plug early after fighting breaks out

A 24-hour fast food bar in Co Armagh was forced to close early this morning after fighting broke out.

The police in Portadown had been on routine patrol in the area of McDonalds at Meadow Lane.

Officers found a number of people fighting both inside and outside the premises.

Police confirm that there were a number of minor injuries and some were also told they would be reported for various offences.

McDonalds, meanwhile, was forced to close up early, having to call it quits at around 1.30am this morning.

It has reopened this morning.

This is not the first time trouble of this nature has flared in the area.

Early last month two teenagers were arrested after 15-year-old boys sustained cuts during fighting in Portadown. An 18-year-old woman was also punched.

The two, aged 17 and 18, were held on suspicion of actual bodily assault and possession of an offensive weapon.

Fighting had broken out on a Saturday night at Meadow Lane and the incident was confirmed the next morning.
