Loyalist campaigner Willie Frazer holds a protest parade after his planned charity bed push from north Belfast going past the Ardoyne Shops to the City Hall has restrictions placed on it by The Parades Commision.

Victims’ campaigner Willie Frazer went ahead with a protest in north Belfast on Saturday but decided not to carry out a fundraising bedpush as planned.

The Parades Commission had ruled that the event – being held to enable Semtex victims to progress their claims for compensation from the Libyan government – could not pass the junction of the Crumlin Road and Hesketh Road or enter the city centre.

Around 20 people took part in the walk to police lines close to Ardoyne.

Mr Frazer has sought legal advice in relation to the ruling and has questioned why a victims’ event should not be allowed to pass along one of the city’s main arterial routes.

Hinting at an escalation of protest, last night Mr Frazer said: “The innocent victims will start to go back on to the streets and roads in the fight for justice.”
