DUP denies ordering Ian Paisley to quit as leader

The Democratic Unionist Party has repeated its denial that senior party figures ordered Ian Paisley to stand down as leader in 2008.

Mr Paisley has accused the current DUP leader Peter Robinson and the party's deputy leader Nigel Dodds of giving him an ultimatum to leave his post.

He made the claims in a BBC programme that was broadcast on Monday night.
