Around eight protesters, believed to be part of the so-called 'yellow vest movement' tried to block Talbot Road this afternoon.

An eye-witness said one of them was using a loudhailer and was talking about 'Brexit, the IRA, Bloody Sunday and Syria.'

The yellow-vest movement began in Paris last year in retaliation to reforms being organised by the French President Emmanuel Macron.
