Three people due in court over Twelfth rioting

Three people are due in court today charged in connection with rioting in north Belfast on 12 July.

Two 18-year-olds and a juvenile will face a charge of riotous assembly following an outbreak of trouble in Ardoyne as Orangemen made the return leg of their journey during this year's Twelfth demonstrations.

Over 100 police officers and seven members of the public were injured during the trouble which saw petrol and blast bombs thrown at police and impact rounds fired.

All three individuals are due to appear at Laganside Magistrates Court on Friday morning.
