Health Minister Edwin Poots has accused Sinn Féin of being more interested in covering up for their "paedophile-protecting president" than serving the needs of the community.

The accusation, aimed at Gerry Adams, came during a clash with Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane in a debate over the ban on blood donations from gay men.
