Dozens of young people can be seen pushing staff to the side and grabbing drinks and food off the serving counter in horrifying footage. Upwards of fifty youths were chanting and screaming as they looted the fast-food restaurant amid a cost of living crisis and a soaring inflation rate that continues to cause angst among the population. Several staff were seen hiding in the back corners of the food processing areas in what the police have described as a “commercial burglary”.
In shaky footage, upwards of 50 young people can be seen congregating around the restaurant’s counter.
Several jump atop the counter while others hold their middle fingers up to the staff and scream “f*** you”.
Multiple members of the flash mob hold their phones up as they film the ordeal for social media.
The incident is the latest mob attack in a major UK city after a group was filmed in London earlier this month running into stores near Oxford Street and looting their produce.
Nottinghamshire Police have said up to 50 people, believed to be aged between 14 and 16, rushed into the Clumber Street outlet at 9pm on Sunday.
Roughly seven made their way behind the counter to take food while it was being prepared, while others filmed on their phones.
The police said about 20 of the youths abused and threatened staff as the febrile atmosphere exploded into a dangerous robbery.
No arrests have been made but a police investigation is underway.
