PSNI: 'Violence is not inevitable'

The Parades Commission, which rules on contentious parades, has decreed that Orangemen return from their main demonstration by 4pm tomorrow. There is a republican march planned at 5.30pm in the same area.

PSNI assistant chief constable Will Kerr said they would uphold the Commission's determinations on the two parades.

Last year there was serious violence in the area.

Mr Kerr said: "There is no such thing as an inevitability of violence tomorrow."
