Mahon Tribunal : Bertie Ahern says he 'told truth'

The Irish government has asked the Irish police to look at the findings of a report into corruption in the Republic's planning process.

The Mahon Tribunal found that former Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern failed to truthfully account for a number of financial transactions.

But the tribunal did not make a corruption finding against Mr Ahern.

In a statement on Thursday, Mr Ahern said he had never "received a corrupt payment".

Mark Simpson reports.
