Read the latest UTV stories, Controversial Avoniel bonfire lit in east Belfast on ITV News, videos, stories and all the latest UTV newsA controversial bonfire in East Belfast has passed off peacefully and without incident. The Pyre in the grounds of Avoneil leisure centre was lit as part of Eleventh Night celebrations. Just hours earlier, a stand-off over the bonfire ended after councillors backed down over plans to demolish it. Belfast City Council abandoned an attempt to remove the structure, which has been built in a leisure centre car park, after its hired private contractor pulled out of the job following the appearance of sinister graffiti threats close to the site purporting to identify the company. The PSNI had warned the council that sending in contractors, escorted by its officers, could have prompted serious disorder orchestrated by the East Belfast grouping of the UVF, with the risk of gun violence. Without a contractor willing to do the work, councillors acknowledged on Thursday that their plan to demolish it had to be axed. They have instead urged police to pursue bonfire builders for trespassing on the Avoniel site.
