East Belfast MP Gavin Robinson has said the new PSNI chief constable must act on his commitment to take on the loyalist paramilitary group, the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF).

"It's encouraging to hear what the chief constable has had to say... but the community want action," he said.

Last week, Chief Constable Simon Byrne said the PSNI would "not tolerate" the UVF and would "take it on using all the powers".

Mr Byrne made the comments following tensions surrounding a bonfire in the grounds of the Avoniel Leisure Centre in east Belfast.
