Villiers condemns violence in North Belfast

Following reports that 8 PSNI officers were injured in North Belfast this evening, Rt Hon Theresa Villiers has condemned those responsible

Ms Villiers said:

I condemn these disgraceful attacks on the police. Those responsible do nothing to further the cause they claim to promote. They damage Northern Ireland and wreck a day which should be about respectful celebration of cultural tradition.

My thoughts are with all those injured this evening.
