Crumlin Road Courthouse to get Stormont help

Stormont is stepping in to sort out the future of one of Northern Ireland's best-known listed buildings.

Crumlin Road Courthouse in north Belfast has been lying derelict for 15 years and is in a state of serious disrepair.

It is owned by a private developer, but now Stormont is intervening with an action plan.

A series of fires several years ago left the 160-year-old building exposed to the elements.
