Battle of the Somme: Loyalists unfurl new commemorative flag

A new flag to mark the Battle of the Somme has been unfurled in Belfast.

The Loyalist Community Council (LCC) has created the flag to commemorate the centenary of the World War One battle.

It says the flag is supported by three paramilitary groups, the Ulster Defence Association (UDA), the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) and the Red Hand Commando.
