Praxis: Compensation payment 'not possible' says Villiers

Northern Ireland Secretary of State Theresa Villiers has turned down requests for the mental health charity Praxis to be compensated for the money it spent on improvements at Hillsborough Castle.

Speaking to BBC News NI's Kevin Magee, she said that compensation is not going to be possible.

Sixteen people with learning difficulties work in a market garden and coffee shop run by Praxis Care.

The NIO gave Praxis use of part of the estate almost 10 years ago, but said it was told last March it would have to leave.
