'Army' vehicles at flag protest intimidating

LAST Friday evening, at the entrance to the Seymour Hill estate, the traffic slowed as it passed the regular peaceful flag protest by about 50 people.

However, at the side of the road were three Army Land Rovers, one was stripped down and had a machine gun mounted on it. There are a number of questions. Are these real Army Land Rovers? If not, who has got hold of them (and a machine-gun) and why are they with a loyalist flag protest?

It was both intimidating and menacing and has no place in a civilised society.
