The 12th of July Parade in Belfast

The President of the Methodist Church in Ireland said Belfast on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning was like "a tale of two cities".

Rev Dr Laurence Graham was commenting on events at an east Belfast bonfire on Tuesday night and the Orange Parade past Ardoyne on Wednesday morning.

He said: "It's almost like 'A Tale of Two Cities'.

"This morning, the parade of Orange Lodges passing the Ardoyne shops, a parade which in the recent past provoked angry and physical protests, passed in a respectful and dignified manner."

The procession and local response, he stated, was "in marked contrast to a bonfire in east Belfast which not only burned the election posters of parties they did not agree with but went beyond this by burning a coffin bearing the image of the late deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness".

Rev Graham compared these actions to the reaction of Martin McGuinness's son Emmett, who tweeted on Tuesday night: "I am very thankful that I was raised by parents never to hate anyone or anything."

Commenting on news that firefighters came under attack, for the first time in years, while dealing with bonfires, Rev Graham said he was "saddened" by the reports.
