SDLP leader Alasdair McDonnell says he is not 'going to run away'

The SDLP leader Alasdair McDonnell has responded to party critics saying "I'm not going to run away from a task half done."

Mr McDonnell has faced calls to resign since saying he would be standing down from the assembly but continuing to lead the party from Westminster as an MP.

Speaking to the BBC's Gareth Gordon, he said he is "going nowhere" and will win any challenge to his leadership.
