McDonald's Serve Up Beethoven to Combat Customer Violence


A McDonald's fast food store in the UK has taken to piping classical music in an attempt to curb late night alcohol- fueled violence

It's hoped the classical repertoire, ranging from Brahms to Beethoven, will have a soothing effect on revellers - who have spilled out from nearby clubs and pubs

"The idea is the yobs would disperse as it's not their scene," Stockport Police Officer Philip Harding has said

"The classical music clearly differentiates between the nightclub atmosphere, that some customers have just left, and the more serene family restaurant that McDonald's aims to provide," a local council spokesperson has said
