Youths Sprayed With Fire Extinguisher As They Attack London Subway Restaurant
29 January 2019, 15:03
A mob of youths attacked and smashed up a Subway restaurant in Dagenham after reportedly hearing rumours of free food being given away.
An employee could be seen spraying a fire extinguisher towards the yobs as they tried to force their way into the east London outlet.
One youngster kicked in the door, causing a glass window to shatter as the baying crowd cheered and others inside brawled.
The incident took place at about 5:45pm on Friday.
Police say no arrests were made and enquiries are ongoing.
A Subway spokesman said: "An incident took place on Friday evening which was unconnected to the Subway Store.
"We can categorically confirm it was not as a result of the store giving away ‘end of the line’ food.”
