David Cameron: 'We made good progress but no deal'

David Cameron has left talks at Stormont in Northern Ireland saying a deal was not possible but good progress had been made.

The Prime Minister said he had tabled a financial package amounting to £1bn but that would only be made available to the Executive if an agreement can be reached on outstanding disputes.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said he believed the document put in front of the political parties on Thursday night addressed all of the issues.

He said the Irish and British governments would continue to be available to the parties, but that he believed the Northern Ireland politicians would be able to "conclude the outstanding issues".

Earlier, Sinn Féin accused Mr Cameron of acting as a penny-pinching accountant.
