Staff at a McDonald’s in Wigan were left shocked when 100 teenagers descend of the fast food restaurant shouting sexist abuse and even climbing over the counter.

The group were filmed on a mobile phone and it’s been posted on YouTube and watched by 65,000 people.

The disturbance at McDonald's in Standishgate in Wigan on 10th April saw youths abuse staff and steal food.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said they are investigating the incident and detectives were looking at the YouTuBe video.

In the film, around 100 youths chant sexist abuse at staff and climb over the restaurant's counter.

The police said others had stolen food, thrown rubbish and acted in a manner that was “wholly unacceptable”.

A spokeswoman for Mcdonald’s said they had been “appalled by the deplorable behaviour displayed in our Standishgate restaurant".

"The safety and security of our employees is of paramount importance and it is completely unacceptable for them to be the targets of any level of intimidation or abuse," she said.

"Fortunately nobody was injured, but we are offering our full support to those staff members affected by the shock of the incident. We are also cooperating fully with the police."

Parents are being urged to watch the video and report their child to police if they recognise one of those causing problems.
