One of the leading faces of the loyalist protest at Twaddell Avenue has not ruled out the possibility that the encampment could still be there in a year’s time.

Gerald Solinas was reacting to the decision of the Parades Commission to repeat its ban on letting three lodges to return “home” up the Crumlin Road on the evening of the Twelfth.

The area, by the Ardoyne shopfronts, is at an interface between loyalist and republican neighbourhoods and the commission’s decision last year sparked serious disorder, followed by the setting up of a camp calling for respect for unionist culture.
