An EU funding programme has withdrawn its offer of £18m in financial support for the peace centre at the former Maze prison in Northern Ireland.

The Special European Programmes Body said it had done so after consulting with the lead partner - the Office of the First and Deputy First Minister.

They said they decided, after the talks, that the centre was no longer viable.

BBC Northern Ireland political correspondent Gareth Gordon reports.
