DUP councillor Jenny Palmer 'told adviser was toast'

A DUP councillor at the centre of controversy over Nelson McCausland's handling of Northern Ireland's public housing body said she was told the minister's special adviser was "toast".

Jenny Palmer was giving evidence to a Stormont committee investigating allegations of political interference in the Housing Executive.

The claims were made in BBC Spotlight programme broadcast last year.
