PSNI renew appeal for calm following another night of violence on the streets of Belfast

Street violence has erupted for the second night running on the streets of Belfast, with a number of police officers attacked in the north of the city.

The PSNI appealed for calm and asked anyone with any influence in the community to try to ensure young people do not get caught up in criminality.

In Belfast, two boys, aged 13 and 14, were among eight people arrested in connection with riots in a loyalist area of the city.

First Minister and DUP leader, Arlene Foster, urged young people “not to get drawn into disorder”, saying violence “will not make things better”.
