Eight people have been arrested for public order offences in north and west Belfast overnight. Trouble flared during the Eleventh Night, an annual marching season celebration involving the lighting of bonfires.
Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) assistant chief constable Will Kerr said:
I am pleased that last night was one of the most peaceful in recent years and am encouraged by the responsible behaviour of the vast majority of people involved.
I appreciate the efforts of all those involved in ensuring this was the case and I would continue to encourage everyone to work together to ensure that today passes off peacefully and that local communities are not disrupted with the violence witnessed in previous years.
