Watch: CCTV captures ugly scenes in Newry with beer bottles launched in street fight

This CCTV footage shows the moment a couple of thugs launched beer bottles in a unsavoury street fight outside a Newry pub on Saturday night.

Nan Rices, on Francis Street, shared the footage on their social media channels following the nasty incident in a bid to identify the “lovely fellas” responsible for the attack.

The video – just over a minute long – shows – in particular – two young males launch what appears to be glass beer bottles against two others as they flee inside an adjoining property. Others watched on as the bottles smashed against the door and their intended victims.

Moments later, one of those involved, punches another male in the street as he makes his way in the direction of the original incident.

Police, this afternoon, confirmed to Armagh I that they had received a report of “anti-social behaviour involving a group of males outside a licensed premises in the Francis Street area of Newry shortly after 11.05pm on Saturday”.

A PSNI spokesperson added: “Police attended the area and the males had left prior to police attendance. No further complaints were made.”
