A 17-year-old boy is to appear in court charged in connection with serious rioting in north Belfast last month.

He faces a number of charges, including riotous assembly and having an offensive weapon.

Several police officers were injured during three nights of violence in Ardoyne which began on 12 July.

The boy presented himself at Antrim Road police station on Thursday afternoon, days after police released photos of 14 rioting suspects.
