Video: Belfast bonfire injunction - Tensions remain high over four sites in city


Bonfire builders remain defiant after a High Court injunction forbidding more material to be used on pyres at four contentious sites in east Belfast sparked anger.

Loyalist Jamie Bryson has thrown down the gauntlet to unionist councillors in Belfast over a High Court injunction preventing more material being brought to four bonfires.

Mr Bryson has called on all 24 unionist councillors to condemn the council's injunction and distance themselves from it.

He demands that they voice their opposition to the "draconian and inflammatory injunction" and call for it to be revoked.

Veteran UUP councillor Jim Rodgers declined to comment on Mr Bryson's ultimatum or the legal implications of the injunction.

"I have absolutely no comment to make," he said.
