Sinn Féin has blamed loyalists returning from the abandoned Love Ulster march in Dublin for riots in Portadown, Co Armagh, early yesterday morning.

Six PSNI officers were injured during the trouble involving more than 100 people in the High Street and Edward Street areas.

Local Sinn Féin councillor Brian McKeown said a loyalist crowd had attacked customers leaving two Catholic-owned bars in the town.

He claimed the attackers included several loyalist bandsmen who had been in Dublin earlier in the day for the Love Ulster march.
