According to the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), thirty petrol bombs were thrown at police and three vehicles were hijacked and set alight during short but intense rioting in Newtonabbey, on the northern outskirts of Belfast.

Dozens of mostly young men were involved in the rioting which lasted around three hours.
