Ian Paisley dies: How Paisley made his point

Former Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley, has died aged 88.

Prime Minister David Cameron has described him as "one of the most forceful and instantly recognisable characters in British politics for nearly half a century".

His "forcefulness" was never clearer than in the European Parliament where, after being elected an MEP in 1979, he made sure his message heard loud and clear.
