A reported explosion hit a McDonald’s in the French town of Grenoble on Thursday after a large device was spotted in a toilet. 

Police closed roads surrounding the fast food restaurant to investigate the cause of the alleged blast, which happened at about 11.50am local time.

Police have not confirmed the ‘explosive nature of the event’, but a police insider suggested that the blast could have been the result of a big firecracker.
