Armed police swooped on McDonald’s after a “masked gang in a BMW” attacked a security guard. Witnesses described seeing two men in balaclavas arrive at the fast food restaurant at Switch Island Leisure Park in Liverpool just before 9.30am today.
Police are understood to have raced to the scene following reports of an armed robbery. Several officers are at the scene and a cordon is in place around the restaurant.
A Switch Island security officer told the Liverpool Echo: “They didn’t get away with anything. No one was injured.” A McDonald’s spokeswoman told the newspaper all the staff were “fine”. The restaurant remains closed while police carry out an investigation.
