A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police said: "We are treating this incident very seriously.

"This is a commercial burglary as the group forced their way behind the counter of a business and stole food and soft drinks.

"It is completely unacceptable.”

Police also reportedly said that the same group were alleged to be outside the Milton Street McDonald’s at around 10pm, but a repeat of the incident didn't occur, according to the Nottingham Post.

The youths have been described as aged between 14 and 16, dressed in tracksuit bottom, hats and caps.

The force added: "No arrests have been made yet, but we will be working with the Clumber Street McDonald’s and carrying out CCTV inquiries to find those responsible.”

While a spokesperson for McDonald's said: “We’re aware of an incident that took place at our Clumber Street restaurant on Sunday night.

“We were shocked and appalled by the incident which has absolutely no place in our restaurants.

“The incident was reported to the police who attended the restaurant. We will continue to support the police with any further investigations."
