Also on social media, the PSNI appeal for the public to expect traffic delays today - and to enjoy their day.

"The sun hasn't quite come out yet but let's hope it does for all of you who are attending community events and parades today," said the post.

"There are a number of feeder parades and main demonstrations taking place across Northern Ireland today.

"If you are travelling today you should expect traffic delays.

"Please be patient and allow extra time for your journey. We will be out and about today so please feel free to give us a wave and stop for a chat.
