Unionists in Ballymena have condemned republican plans to stage a march to commemorate the 34th anniversary of internment in the Co Antrim town.

The organisers have submitted an application to the Parades Commission for a march on August 9.

Sinn Féin has insisted that the nationalist community just wants a peaceful parade, but the DUP has claimed it will lead to trouble if allowed to go ahead.

Party spokesman Ian Paisley Jr said: "This will turn into a pro-IRA march which cause only resentment.

"That's just being stupid and it will cause problems and turmoil."
