'Shots fired' during east Belfast clashes

Police in east Belfast have used water cannon after coming under attack from about 100 loyalist protestors for the third day in a row.

There are reports that shots were fired, as demonstrators threw bricks and smoke bombs.

The protest was the latest against a decision to limit the number of days the union flag is flown over Belfast City Hall.

Andy Martin reports.
