Tom Barry sorry for 'inappropriate' Dail incident

An Irish TD (member of parliament) has apologised for his "disrespectful and inappropriate" behaviour after he grabbed a female colleague in the Irish parliament and put her on his lap.

It happened at around 03:00 BST on Thursday during a break in a debate on changes to Ireland's abortion laws.

The incident was captured on cameras.
