An Orange lodge made up of former Ulster Defence Regiment members has appealed for flag protesters not to disrespect a weekend commemoration parade in Belfast.

The plea comes as the Defenders of the Realm prepare to commemorate 25 years since the IRA murdered two UDR soldiers in the city on Saturday.

Privates James Cummings and Freddie Starrett, both 22, were killed in 1988 when a bomb was detonated close to where the Castle Court shopping centre now stands.
