Casement Park: Minister challenged over safety concerns knowledge

A residents group has challenged the sports minister after she said she was unaware of safety concerns regarding the redevelopment of Casement Park.

Safety expert Paul Scott said the 38,000-capacity stadium could not be evacuated safely and there was the potential for a disaster like the Hillsborough stadium tragedy.

Mrs Ní Chuilín said the first she had heard of his allegations was when he appeared before a Stormont committee.

She said she was "absolutely confident that had concerns of that nature been raised with my officials before I would have heard about it."

But The Mooreland and Owenvarragh Residents Association (MORA) claim they have evidence which contradicts the Minister's assertion.

BBC Newsline's Mark Simpson reports.
