Sinn Fein Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín has been injured in an incident involving a police Land Rover, after a contentious Orange march in Belfast.

Sinn Fein said she was hit by the PSNI vehicle as she came to the aid of her party colleague Gerry Kelly.

Mr Kelly said he was forced to cling to the front of a moving PSNI Land Rover after failing to stop the vehicle.

Ms Ní Chuilín has been discharged from hospital. The incident happened in the Peter's Hill area of north Belfast on Friday night.

The PSNI said the Police Ombudsman is investigating the claims.
