Violence has escalated at the Orange Order march in West Belfast after loyalists opened fire on police with automated weapons.

Blast and petrol bombs have also been thrown, and at least three police officers have been injured.

There are reports that plastic bullets have also been fired during the rioting in the West Circular Road area.

Elsewhere, vehicles have been set on fire on the Ardoyne Road and North Queen's Street.

Trouble flared as marchers passed the Springfield Road area, where today's parade was re-routed.
