I thought i’d take the time to show those who perhaps do not have the local knowledge the layout of the interface which has been the scene of two nights of rioting. The RC Church (1) St Matthews sits at the corner of Bryson Street (2) and the Newtownards Rd. The green paint splat in the foreground shows the range of the rioters as this was where the PSNI Landrovers were parked last night to protect the entrance to the Short Strand. (3) makeshift barricade opposite St Matthews where i found 2 rubber bullets (66 are reported to have been fired) (4) boarded up houses on the Newtownards Rd (5) CCTV with a birds eye view……
