Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson has said the political process is "the only way forward" to ease unrest, following the decision by Belfast City Council to fly the Union flag on designated days, rather than every day of the year.

Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, Robinson said Unionist forums would address "all of the issues" surrounding the violence of the past 40 days.
