Pupils open Belfast's 'peace wall' gate in Alexandra Park

A new gate at an interface barrier - or "peace wall" - which has divided a north Belfast park since 1994 has been opened.

The Alexandra Park fence was put up to try to stop sectarian fighting.

"This is on a par with the Berlin Wall", said Syliva Gordon of Groundwork Northern Ireland.

The city currently has 49 such 'peace walls', and the gate has been installed on a trial basis.
