Parades Commission restrict numbers allowed on Orange march

In the North, the Parades Commission has said no more than one thousand people may take part in an Orange Order march at Drumcree this evening.

The ruling was made after the Commision was ordered by the courts to review its decision to allow the controversial parade take place in Portadown without any restrictions.

Residents - who are afraid that the march will attempt to pass down the Nationalist Garvaghy Road - had sought the judicial review of the ruling.

Orangemen have been banned from marching down the road for the past eight years.
