G8: One arrest amid protest in Belfast

Small group gathered at City Hall as US President Barack Obama made his address at the Waterfront Hall

Police made one arrest today after a small number of protesters marched to Belfast City Hall in opposition to the arrival of the G8 leaders.

A small group of protesters made their way from the Falls Road to Belfast City Hall on Monday morning.

At around 11am, a 19-year-old man was arrested for a number of offences.

Following the demonstration, the protesters then made their way back to the west of the city.

Yesterday, a 48-year-old man was arrested in the East Bridge Street area of Enniskillen on suspicion of criminal damage.

He was released later the same day.

On Sunday night a teenage boy was arrested over reports of a petrol bomb being thrown in East Belfast.

PSNI officers were called to Cluan Place just before 8pm.

They removed an object for further examination and there were no reports of any injuries.
