A woman has been hit by a plastic baton round fired by police in north Belfast.

The incident is believed to have happened as police were enforcing a Parades Commission ban. Several police officers and one civilian have been hurt. North Belfast MP Nigel Dodds has also been injured in violence that followed an Orange Order parade.

Police say Mr Dodds was knocked unconscious and taken away in an ambulance.

Earlier he had appealed for calm after trouble broke out when an Orange parade was stopped on the Woodvale Road.
