Two Stormont ministers last night failed in a High Court bid to have police forced to help in the removal of a controversial loyalist bonfire in north Belfast.


The action brought by Nichola Mallon and Deirdre Hargey was dismissed after a judge sitting in an earlier emergency case refused to direct PSNI officers to intervene at the Tigers Bay site.
