Peter Robinson threat to quit over Hyde Park bomb case

Northern Ireland's First Minister Peter Robinson has threatened to resign unless there is a judicial inquiry into secret letters given to more than 180 Irish republican paramilitary suspects.

The DUP leader said he was not prepared to remain as first minister in a power-sharing government "kept in the dark" about such an important matter.

Chris Buckler reports.
