UTV reporter Aideen Kennedy is at the scene.
“There were missiles coming from the Short Strand area and they landed at the feet of people in the lower Newtownards Road,” she said.
“Then suddenly out of nowhere about 200 men in balaclavas came and started throwing bricks, fireworks and stones across into the Short Strand.
“There’s a massive police presence trying to stop the trouble.”‘
