Sinn Féin has accused loyalists in north Belfast of trying to provoke street clashes with local nationalists.

Party spokesman David Kennedy claimed a group of loyalists armed with baseball bats entered a nationalist area last night in an apparent effort to attack local shops.

He also claimed a smaller group of loyalists also entered the area throwing stones and bricks in an effort to provoke a riot.

Mr Kennedy accused the PSNI of failing to tackle growing violence in the area, saying "loyalists are able to amass in large numbers and nothing is being done about it".
