Driver held over riot car ramming

A driver has been arrested for suspected attempted murder after a teenager was hit by a car during a riot in Belfast.

PSNI officers lifted the vehicle off the girl (16) and gave first aid while separating missile-throwing loyalists from republicans in the north of the city.

One inspector sustained a severed ear injury and another officer's finger was almost bitten off during sectarian disorder which prompted police to use water cannons and fire baton rounds.
