Gallery: Pride and violence at Twelfth parades in Belfast

Loyalists of all ages take part in Orange Order parades; Nationalist youths later turn on police. Our gallery.

THE ARDOYNE AREA of North Belfast saw yet more Twelfth of July violence last night, as petrol bombs, stones, fireworks and debris hurled at members of the PSNI.

Police fired plastic bullets and water canons to force nationalists away from the area, after youths lashed out at police for sealing off some streets to allow loyalist parades through the mainly nationalist area.
