The PUP's Billy Hutchinson has said he believes the process that led to the decision to stop flying the union flag daily at Belfast City Hall is flawed

He told the BBC's Sunday Politics that steps were being taken to challenge that decision. He would not be drawn on what those steps were.

"Over the next couple of days we will announce what we're doing," he said.

"If the case is as solid as I think it is, we will announce it in the next week or so."

Protests have taken place across Northern Ireland since the decision was taken to fly the flag on designated days only.

Some of the protests have ended in violence. Almost 30 police officers have been injured in the rioting.
