An Irish league football match in Belfast has been called off following a Union flag protest outside the Crusaders ground.

Three people were arrested as police tried to move the loyalist protesters away from the ground where Crusaders and Cliftonville were due to play.

Officials from both clubs then decided to postpone the game.
