A controversial 'anti-teenager' device outside of a McDonald's restaurant in Great Yarmouth has divided opinion.

Now we are asking readers like you what you think, by asking you to vote in the poll above.

The fast-food chain in the town said it was tackling anti-social behaviour by using a Mosquito device to disperse young people.

The chain's restaurant on Regent Road is using the controversial device - branded 'degrading' by civil liberties campaigners - to target people loitering outside the restaurant.

It gives off a high-pitched buzzing sound designed to be uncomfortable and unpleasant to young people.
