A loyalist protest in Belfast has passed off peacefully.

About 200 people marched through the city centre on Saturday afternoon.

They were marking the second anniversary of Belfast City Council's decision to restrict the flying of the Union flag from City Hall.

In December 2012, Belfast City Council voted to limit the flying of the flag at the building to designated days.
