Police say they have “untested intelligence” that firearms may be used against contractors and officers if any attempt is made to remove a controversial bonfire at Tigers Bay in north Belfast.

Police have said they cannot guarantee the safety of contractors and have strongly advised against moving the fire in the loyalist area which sits on a peace line close to the nationalist New Lodge.
