A 37-year-old man has been charged with riotous assembly and throwing a petrol bomb over trouble in north Belfast's Ardoyne area on 12 July.

He is expected to appear at Belfast Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

A 23-year-old man arrested over trouble in the Oldpark area of north Belfast has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

The PSNI has so far made 33 arrests across Northern Ireland in relation to trouble around the 12 July parades.

During three nights of trouble across the city, shots were fired at police and rioters also threw petrol bombs.

The PSNI responded with water cannon and fired over 100 baton rounds.

After the rioting, Assistant Chief Constable Duncan McCausland promised there would be "significant arrests" of those involved.
