  • Extended description

    There are more scuffles on the civil rights march route, this time at Toome, Antrim, after a flower-pot hits Major Ronald Bunting's car and its thrower is arrested.

    The protesters regrouped outside Toome, Antrim, and entered the town to great public support. After lunch the march continued, but was again diverted by a police order before reaching Gulladuff, Derry. Mobs opposed to the march and armed with sticks had been seen in Maghera throughout the day, so the marchers decided to bypass Maghera and spend the night in the nearby Brackaghreilly Hall.
