McDonalds uses bizarre tactic to stop rampaging yobs clashing in restaurants | The Sun

A McDONALD’S branch is to play Beethoven to calm rampaging yobs.

Fed-up staff are making the switch from pop hits after being pelted with coins during clashes involving more than 20 young trouble-makers.

Classical music will play from 5pm in the 24-hour outlet in Wrexham.

Wi-fi will also be turned off at times during the evening.
