A spokesperson for McDonald's told the Advertiser there is no company-wide policy on employees wearing body cameras, nor any plans to roll out an initiative.

But staff at the Market Place branch have been told they can wear one if they feel it necessary following instances of anti-social behaviour in the area.

The spokesperson added: "The safety of our people and customers is our absolute priority.

"We are aware of recent anti-social behaviour in the area and continue to act as good neighbour by looking at ways to help reduce these incidences.”
