The row over the flying of the Union flag at Belfast City Hall has led to a sixth successive night of clashes in Northern Ireland's capital.

Hours after the latest violence, the flag was raised there to mark the birthday of a member of the British royal family, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, the UK's future king.
