Gerry Kelly: MLA's car clamp removal reported to police

Sinn Féin's Gerry Kelly has been reported to the police for alleged criminal damage after he was filmed removing a clamp from his car.

The North Belfast MLA was recorded using what appears to be bolt cutters to remove the clamp on Friday.

His actions were criticised by unionist politicians after footage of the incident was posted on social media.

Police said they "received a report of criminal damage" in Exchange Street, Belfast, at about 14:20 GMT that day.

"It is believed that damage was caused to the wheel-clamp of a car," the PSNI spokeswoman added.
Sinn Féin said the matter is being dealt with by Mr Kelly's solicitor.
