Petrol bombs thrown at police after march in Belfast

Petrol bombs, stones and bottles have been thrown at police in Northern Ireland after they stopped a republican parade entering Belfast city centre.

Officers used water cannon in response, an hour after the march ended.

Organisers had been granted permission to go ahead - but under some conditions.

They were told they had to leave the city centre by 1.30pm, but they did not start the parade until after that time.
