Belfast riots Petrol bombs, fireworks and rocks thrown over this peace wall

Published on 08 Apr 2021 / In Uncategorized

⁣The wall divides the community near Shankill Road, west Belfast, from the Irish nationalist stronghold of Springfield Road in Lanark Way.

Video footage shows a car appearing to ram open the peace gates following nearly a week of violence.

Further down the road a bonfire was lit where a crowd of approximately 100 people, mostly young, were assembled.

The gates of the peace line on Lanark Way were opened, leading to clashes between loyalists and nationalists as social media footage captured petrol bombs being thrown from both sides of the wall.

Stones were chucked at police while a press photographer was reportedly assaulted.
