An 18-year-old man is in a critical condition after a number of stabbings close to a controversial bonfire in Belfast, police said.

Two men, aged 28 and 21, have been arrested following the incidents in the New Lodge area of north Belfast.

The incidents took place near an anti-internment bonfire.

Ahead of the Eleventh Night.

A towering bonfire is being built across the road from a petrol station.

The Eleventh Night pyre is under construction on a grass verge in Carrickfergus.

There have been increased concerns about bonfires built near businesses and homes after houses were gutted last year in west Belfast. Several terraced homes at Hopewell Square were damaged last July due to embers from the nearby Eleventh Night bonfire.
