Ford slams Stormont budget 'shambles'

The justice minister has described proposals to break the deadlock over the Stormont budget as a shambles.

David Ford was speaking after studying a finance paper circulated on Wednesday, aimed at resolving the stand-off between the DUP and Sinn Féin.

The paper tackles a shortfall of £75m in the annual budget, and looming penalties of about £90m from the Treasury because welfare reform has not been introduced in Northern Ireland. Martina Purdy reports.
