Press Eye - Belfast - Saturday 20th July 2013 Orange supporters pictured on the Woodvale Road in Belfast afternoon attempt to parade up to the police lines. In an unexpected move earlier this week, Orangemen made a new application to the Parades Commission adjudication body to march the disputed Crumlin Road section of the route today. That bid was again rejected by the commission - a move that is likely to prompt another stand-off between police and protesters at the same community interface area later. The Order said it applied for Saturday's event to complete a return parade they were banned from making on the Twelfth of July. Order members have continued to hold protests in the area throughout the week. Picture by Kelvin Boyes / Press Eye.

The Orange Order has once again applied to the Parades Commission for another three parades past a contentious flashpoint in north Belfast.

The organisation wants to march by the Ardoyne shops area of the city this Saturday - along with parades during the following two weekends.

It comes after thousands of angry loyalists marched to police lines on the Woodvale Road in the north of the city on Saturday to protest at the decision to ban three Ligoniel lodges from walking past the shop fronts.

Five nights of violent rioting in north and east Belfast followed a decision to prevent the lodges walking along a stretch of the Crumlin Road during the Twelfth.

The violence left more than 70 officers injured and cost tax payers millions.

Supporters had warned that they will call thousands more out on to the streets in the coming weeks.

Amidst a massive PSNI security operation at the weekend, the County Grand Orange Lodge of Belfast had handed leaflets to supporters warning trouble-makers to stay away.
