Man is remanded on rioting charge
A west Belfast man has appeared at the city's magistrate's court charged with rioting in north Belfast on 12 July.

Michael Cole, 20, of Glenside Road, was charged with riotous assembly at Ardoyne.

About 100 police officers were injured as trouble erupted after the return leg of an Orange Order parade. Seven members of the public were also hurt.

Mr Cole is the fourth person to appear in court on charges related to the riot. He was remanded in custody.

During the trouble, petrol and blast bombs were thrown and the police fired plastic bullets for the first time in three years.

Detectives have been studying more than 20 hours of video footage of the disturbance, taken from security force cameras.

Meanwhile, a 17-year-old youth is due in court on Monday on a public order charge connected with the same incident.

He is facing a charge of riotous assembly.
