DETECTIVES investigating rioting in north Belfast on the Twelfth of July have charged a man.

The 27-year-old was arrested on Thursday morning during a planned operation by a special detective squad.

The suspect will face charges of riotous assembly and attempted grievous bodily harm on PSNI officers at Woodvale Road.

He is expected to appear before Belfast Magistrates Court later.

A 16-year-old boy has also been arrested and is currently still in custody being questioned.

There was serious violence on the Woodvale Road after an Orange Order march was stopped from walking past the nationalist Ardoyne district on 12 July.

A number of police officers were injured as they enforced a Parades Commission ruling which banned a Ligoniel feeder parade from returning home by the Ardoyne shop fronts.
