Politicians on all sides in Northern Ireland are to be invited to private talks in Cardiff next week in a new attempt to ease sectarian tensions on the streets of Belfast.

Police confirmed today that meetings would take place next weekend. Academics from the University of Ulster are also believed to be involved in the new initiative.

The moves follows serious trouble in Belfast over Christmas and the New Year after the city council’s decision to restrict the flying of the Union flags to designated days.
