Northern Ireland riots: Bus hijacked and set on fire

A bus has been hijacked and set on fire in Belfast as violence escalated on the sixth consecutive night of unrest on the streets of Northern Ireland.

Prime minister Boris Johnson said he was “deeply concerned by the scenes” after the Translink double-decker pelted with petrol bombs in the west of the city.

The attack was one of the several incidents on Wednesday evening on the peace line street that links the loyalist Shankill Road with the nationalist Springfield Road.

Stones were thrown at officers and a press photographer was assaulted as crowds gathered in the area.
