The first happened in the McDonalds off Regina Drive in Perry Barr, at around 1.30pm yesterday (Tuesday, October 31) and the second was in the venue off Watson Road, Nechells, around 5.30pm on Monday (October 30). Police said both incidents are being treated as public nuisance offences.

There was a third incident off the Coventry Road in Small Heath at just after 9pm yesterday - however police say they are not sure if this was connected. They have stepped up patrols across the region as a result.
