Clampdown on Orange march.

Orangemen have been ordered to change the route of a controversial march through Belfast on Friday night.

The last time the Tour of the North was held two years ago, it sparked off serious rioting in which hundreds were injured.

About 6000 people are expected to take part in this year's event, but the Northern Ireland Parades Commission yesterday banned the march from some nationalist areas of the city.

Orange Order leaders will now meet with the RUC to try to work out an alternative route.
