Video: Twaddell protest - Orange Order marks 1,000 days with band parade

Hundreds of people turned out for a parade to mark 1,000 nights of a loyalist protest at Twaddell Avenue in north Belfast.

Three Orange lodges were refused permission to return along a contentious stretch of the Crumlin Road past the Ardoyne shops for that year's Twelfth.

In response to the determination, loyalists set up a protest camp at Twaddell Avenue with lodge members vowing to retain a presence until they were granted permission to complete their parade.

A band parade will marked the 1,000th day of protest with an address made by Belfast county grand master George Chittick on Thursday night.
