Antrim youths 'damaged shutters, closed people in shop'

Two teenagers have been charged with false imprisonment after they closed people into a shop by pulling down and damaging the shutters.

The incident happened at a shop on the Durnish Road in Antrim's Springfarm estate on 17 August.

A shop worker and several customers were effectively locked in the store for about 20 minutes.

The two youths are also charged with criminal damage and are to appear at Antrim Youth Court on 5 September.

A 15-year-old boy arrested in connection with the same incident was released on bail pending further enquiries.
