A video has been shared on Twitter showing the moment when a hooded youth lights a firework before aiming it at customers inside a McDonald’s.
Social media users reported that the incident happened in the Fore Street McDonald’s in Edmonton, north London, on Friday (22nd) evening.
In the footage, the youth lights the firework before taking a step inside the McDonald’s and holding the now lit explosive above his head.
The male, who was wearing a black jacket, black trousers, and a black ‘Nike’ bag, holds the powerful firework for several seconds before it launches and explodes above the heads of customers.
Before the firework is set off, a woman can be heard saying: ‘why are you doing that? Why are you doing that?’
After setting the firework off, the male calmly walks away from the scene.
It is not known how many people were injured or if the individual responsible has been arrested. The MPS and LAS have been contacted for more information.
