Parades rerouted.

Byline: DEIRDRE TYNAN

THE Parades Commission yesterday rerouted a contentious parade planned for next weekend.

The loyalist Apprentice Boys march was due to pass by the Ardoyne shops in North Belfast, the scene of intense rioting since July 12, when an Orange Order parade was forced down the road.

More than 100 RUC officers were injured during the rioting which was the worst in the city for several years.

The loyal order was also barred from walking part its proposed route on the Ormeau Road on Saturday, August 11.
