Youths throw bottles and stones at firefighters

Firefighters have been attacked by a gang of youths throwing bottles and stones in west Belfast.

Up to 40 young people were involved in the attack at Mount Eagle in Lagmore on Thursday evening.

The crew were dealing with a rubbish bin fire in the area when the violence began.

No-one was injured, but the firefighters were shocked. They are not sure whether it was a premeditated attack.
