Cars set alight in disturbances


Several cars have been set on fire

Petrol bombs and paint have been thrown and cars hijacked during disturbances in north Belfast.

Disturbances erupted on the Crumlin Road, Cambrai Street and Enfield Street areas of the city.

Three cars and a lorry have been hijacked and set on fire. The police have closed off part of the Crumlin Road. A bus is also on fire.

The trouble follows the arrests of six men in connection with an operation linked to the ongoing loyalist feud.

The disturbances broke out shortly before 1730 BST.

The Crumlin Road is closed between Tennant Street and Brookfield Mills.
