NI Executive to hold emergency meeting on water crisis

The Northern Ireland Executive will hold an emergency meeting today to discuss how to help the tens of thousands of people who have gone for more than a week without running water.

It may be the weekend before all the burst pipes are found and repaired and there's mounting anger about how the crisis has been dealt with by the state owned company, Northern Ireland Water.

Aisling McVeigh reports.
