A 19-year-old man has been charged four times by police following an incident of anti-social behaviour at a bonfire in south Belfast.

He has been charged with two counts of doing a provocative act and two counts of theft.

He is expected to appear before Belfast Magistrates Court early next month.

As is normal procedure all charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.

It is understood that the charges relate to the arrest of a man on Saturday by police investigating reports of anti-social behaviour at a bonfire site in Posnett Street and the associated theft of a military flag from an address in the area earlier this month.

The property stolen in this incident was recovered by police.
