Spotlight: Arlene Foster criticises 'parasitical' BBC over investigation

A BBC NI Spotlight programme on how assembly members use their expenses was "typical of the parasitical nature" of the BBC, says DUP MLA Arlene Foster.

Spotlight examined the way MLAs use public money to rent their offices.

There were questions about why Mrs Foster used an office rent-free from a businessman from whom she also bought property.

While not disputing this, the DUP said no rules were broken. The BBC said it "stands by its journalism".
