Police have launched an investigation into a mass underage drinking binge that saw more than 100 young concert-goers treated by medics in Belfast.

Eighteen people were hospitalised in the wake of last night’s incident in and around the Odyssey Arena, where Dutch DJ Hardwell was playing to a crowd of 10,000.

Police said around 300 young people were refused entry to the premises - some of whom were drunk and others too young to gain entry to the 16-and-over gig.
