Unionists have voiced disgust at Public Prosecution Service advice that no criminal charges will be brought against a folk band who played at the Ardoyne Fleadh last month.

The band, called The Druids – who faced widespread criticism after its singer urged British soldiers and their “Orange comrades” to get out of Ireland – will no longer face the prospect of prosecution.

The PSNI had received a number of complaints after the remarks were made during a gig by the Kildare-based band. Both unionist and nationalist politicians criticised what was said on stage at the event. The band claimed the comments were taken out of context.
