PSNI Newtownabbey has highlighted an incident in Ballyclare in which teenagers set off bangers at the town’s war memorial at the weekend.
A PSNI spokesperson said that this resulted in a parent having to take her autistic son home as he was “so distressed”.
The spokesperson added: “Not only is this highly disrespectful, but there were also a number of parents with young children and dog walkers in the area.”
“I’d like to take this moment to appeal to you to have a chat with your older kids before they head out with their mates. No-one wants to spoil their fun, but we’ve already had a few issues with anti-social behaviour this weekend.”
