Dublin girl removed from Roma family

Irish police have removed a seven-year-old girl from a Roma couple in Dublin.

The couple claimed that the girl was their daughter, but police checks failed to confirm this.

Officers used powers under Irish law to remove the child from the family and put her in government care.

Andy Martin reports from Belfast.
