SF to meet Parades Commission over Twelfth parades

A meeting is to take place between Sinn Fein and the Parades Commission over a number of controversial Orange Order parades that are to take place in north Belfast on July 12.

A delegation from the party is to meet the commission on Thursday morning with regard to parades along the Springfield Road and Crumlin Road planned for Friday.

Meanwhile, the Springfield Residents' Action Group (SRAG) has withdrawn an application to hold a protest march against the Springfield Road parade.

The residents' group believe the development could lead to a local accommodation over the disputed Orange demonstrations.

Last month, violence broke out after a controversial Orange Order parade in the same area.
