Three 14-year-old boys arrested following violence in Belfast

Three teenage boys have been arrested during the latest night of disturbances in Belfast.

Small pockets of unrest continued in parts of the North last night, despite loyalists urging communities to desist from protesting out of respect for the Duke of Edinburgh, who passed away earlier on Friday.

The disorder started at around 5pm and occurred in various parts of the city including Duncairn Gardens, the Tigers Bay area, and North Queen Street.

The PSNI reported that petrol bombs and masonry, including roof tiles, were thrown at police.

Police were attacked with missiles and a car was set on fire at Tigers Bay, a loyalist area in north Belfast.

Political leaders are continuing to urge the people to remain calm and disengage in rioting and violence.
