Northern Ireland's police chief has said that there needs to be a dialogue about what policing does.

Chief Constable Matt Baggott was addressing delegates to a conference called Belfast: A City of Equals in an Island of Equals.

He said the PSNI was increasingly being dragged into toxic areas such as parades and the past.

Mr Baggott and other PSNI officers were attending a Sinn Féin-organised event for the first time.
