DUP advised mayor not to visit park

The DUP had advised the Belfast lord mayor not to visit a park where he was later attacked by loyalist protesters.

Four DUP politicians also wrote to the council ahead of the visit, saying it was inappropriate for Sinn Féin's Máirtín Ó Muilleoir to open the park.

Mr Ó Muilleoir and nine police officers sustained minor injuries during violent scuffles in Woodvale park on Tuesday.

Gareth Gordon reports.
