Belfast parade: Violence breaks out leaving police injured

Seven police officers have been injured in Belfast when trouble broke out following a parade.

One of them has been taken to hospital, but none of the officers have been seriously injured.

The disturbances broke out after a loyalist band defied a ruling by the parades watchdog and marched past a Catholic Church.

The BBC's Chris Page said police would be reviewing footage of the violence.
