Lord Mayor Máirtín Ó Muilleoir 'jostled by loyalists'

Lord Mayor of Belfast, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir of Sinn Féin, has been jostled and heckled by loyalist protesters at the re-opening of a park in north Belfast.

He was escorted from the ceremony at Woodvale by police after protesters gathered at the community garden.

The police say nine of their officers received cuts and bruising.

The lord mayor said he will continue to represent everyone and there will be no 'no-go' areas.

BBC Northern Ireland's Chris Page reports.
