Deputy Chief Constable Stephen Martin commented:
“We welcomed the opportunity to meet with political representatives in two separate meetings today. The meetings were robust and constructive.
“We explained what police did and why. We also listened carefully to all the strong concerns that have been raised about how we carried out our actions.
“As with all our policing operations there will be a full debrief of our actions on Saturday and we will learn any lessons that result from it.
“Today’s discussions were helpful and reinforced the importance of dialogue in restoring the good will that has surrounded parades in Derry/Londonderry over many years.”
