East Belfast: Police concern over ACT residents' patrols

Police have expressed concern over night-time street patrols by a loyalist community group in east Belfast.

The group, Action for Community Transformation (ACT), told the BBC the aim of the patrols is to prevent crime and deter anti-social behaviour.

ACT is involved in community work. It has set up groups of residents to walk around their estates, watching for burglars and "suspicious activity".

BBC News NI's Colletta Smith reports.
