Concerns of continued violence have been heightened following a second night of unrest in the Carlisle Circus area of Northern Belfast.
The violence broke out initially on Sunday (2 Sept), and continued on Monday night. It is believed that the majority of those taking part are loyalists, however republicans were also reportedly gathered on Antrim Street.
So far more than 60 police officers have been injured, including one suffering with a broken arm, and two being knocked unconscious. Petrol bombs, bricks and fireworks are said to have been launched at police, as well as a van being hijacked and pushed into police lines.
Assistant Chief Constable Will Kerr has said that he fears that someone will be killed unless the violence is brought under control.
Although a heavy police presence was deployed to bring the situation under control, and riot tactics used including a water cannon, there is concern, and rumours on social media that there will be further violence this evening.
