Although no details were released about the date of that incident, the name of the restaurant or if any damage was caused, it was just the latest of a series of anti-social flashpoints in the area.

In one incident last October, a police officer was attacked, with the force using a special dispersal order to try and combat "disorder" in an area bordered by Talbot Road, Devonshire Road, Grosvenor Street, and Church Street.

It led police to send out a message on Twitter: "Please make sure you know where your children are and call them home."
