Not everyone enjoys the good weather

It’s starting to feel a bit like the Maire Celeste here this evening, so I will just post two other stories that appear relevant. There were serious disturbances last night in Ballymena and Portadown:

A man has suffered a serious head injury during a street fight in Portadown, County Armagh. Up to 25 people from the Latvian, Polish and Portuguese communities were involved in the brawl in the Thomas Street area early on Saturday. Three men and a woman were arrested and are being questioned in connection with attacks on police and causing grievous bodily harm with intent. The police also seized a number of weapons, including knives.

Meanwhile, in another part of the fair region, in Ballymena, up to 12 people were involved in a fight in the Wellington Street area at about 1900 BST on Friday.

Feel free if you want to add some detail.
