Twelfth of July: Bonfires lit across Northern Ireland


Bonfires have been lit in loyalist areas across Northern Ireland as the annual July tradition took place amid coronavirus restrictions. While there were fewer fires than usual, significant crowds did gather at several of the bonfires that went ahead. In north Belfast, there was a second night of sporadic disorder close to a community interface as police came under attack from petrol bombers in the nationalist New Lodge close to a bonfire in the loyalist Tiger’s Bay area.
