Clashes follow soccer cup final
Windsor Park
The CIS Cup final was played at Windsor Park
There has been trouble involving Cliftonville soccer fans following the CIS Cup final at Windsor Park.

Police said officers were attacked by a large crowd in the Boucher Road area following the match, in which Glentoran beat Belfast rivals Cliftonville 1-0.

A PSNI spokesman said police officers had prevented a lorry from being hijacked, while several vehicles at a car dealership were damaged.

He said a number of officers were injured during the disturbance.

About 7,000 people watched Glentoran beat Cliftonville, thanks to a 31st minute Gary Hamilton goal.

The police spokesman said there were no reports of trouble during the game but "a breakaway group of approximately 300 people" attacked officers afterwards with bottles, stones and other objects.
