Binned: Flowers and tributes have been removed from graves in Hannahstown Cemetery

Families whose loved ones are buried in a Belfast cemetery say they are "devastated" by the removal of flowers and other personal mementos from the graves.

On Saturday morning, relatives arrived at St Joseph's Cemetery, Hannahstown, to find that tributes including photos and memorial plaques had been put in skips or set to one side.

Relatives claim they only became aware of what had happened when somebody posted a video on Facebook.
