A TEENAGER has been fined for disorderly behaviour during a G8 protest in Belfast city centre.

The 19-year-old, who was detained outside Belfast City Hall on Monday, was fast-tracked through court as part of the G8 criminal justice strategy.

He was part of a small group of demonstrators making their way from the Falls Road to Belfast City Hall at around 11am.

At Belfast Magistrates’ Court he received a conditional discharge for the offence as well as a £150 fine for failure to remove a disguise and £150 for resisting arrest.

To date there has been only been two people arrested in connection with this year’s G8 summit held in Northern Ireland, one in Belfast and one in Enniskillen over the past two days.
