Matt Baggott to step down as NI chief constable

Northern Ireland's Chief Constable Matt Baggott has announced his decision to retire from the post.

He took up the job as head of the Police Service of Northern Ireland in August 2009 and his contract ends in September 2014.

He said it had been "a real privilege to lead the PSNI through the immense changes of the past few years".

BBC Northern Ireland home affairs correspondent Vincent Kearney reports.
