Justice minister Claire Sugden has welcomed the resolution to the Twaddell Avenue parades protest.
The minister said: “I want to pay tribute to the facilitators and all those involved for their tireless efforts to achieve this important agreement to resolve the Twaddell parades dispute and thank them for all their work on making this agreement possible. I look forward to seeing this new agreement implemented and an end to the protest.
