Rioting: Disorder in Carrickfergus

A skinny boy in white trousers, a dark jacket and a black ski mask, he emerges from the crowd to throw the first petrol bomb of the night at a police Land Rover in Carrickfergus. It misses and explodes beside a parked car.

He looks about 13. Somewhere, not far from where the riot is unfolding, his school uniform hangs waiting for a return to class after the Easter holidays next Monday.
