On the Runs: Peter Robinson welcomes NI suspects review

27 February 2014 Last updated at 18:31 GMT

Northern Ireland's First Minister Peter Robinson has welcomed the inquiry set up to look into the NI secret letters row and withdrawn his threat to resign.

It follows David Cameron's decision to order a judge-led inquiry into why more than 180 Republican paramilitary suspects were told by the government they would not be prosecuted.

The policy resulted in a man charged with killing four soldiers in an IRA nail bomb attack in Hyde Park in 1982 walking free from court.
