14 and 17 are gathered around 8pm yesterday evening. Police say a
large amount of alcohol was found and there was evidence of illegal
drugs misuse. The PSNI also say that the young people were not just from
Belfast, but had come from further afield. Some parents and dog walkers

on. We have got three young children so it's not great because we use the
spark for our dogs, it is a family park and there are bottles and glass
and various other things left, it's not great for the safety of the
kids. It is scary of those of us who are parents bringing our children

on whether he would give an Ulster Unionist candidate his
personal high preference vote, he did say that both parties
We are all different and we have different perspectives and ideas. I
want to see a united Ireland but Mike Nesbitt doesn't. The system
means we have to work together as either vote for something and people
who can work together you vote for people who have proven time and time
again they can't even when they do they don't deliver.
