Police were attacked with stones and bottles and petrol bombs thrown at houses and a church in the neighbouring Catholic Short Strand district where people attending a special needs meeting fled in terror.

The driver was believed hurt by flying glass when a brick was thrown through his window in the lower Newtownards Road area.
