PSNI calls for murder probes limit

The outgoing chief constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland has said his force should not investigate Troubles-related murders from before the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

Matt Baggott told the BBC that a new way must be found to deal with such cases and that there was a "need to separate the past from the present".

He made the comments in an interview marking his final day in office with BBC News NI's Home Affairs Correspondent Vincent Kearney
