Anthem singing was 'childish stunt', Sinn Féin MLA says

A rendition of the national anthem at an act of remembrance service at Stormont was a "childish stunt", a Sinn Féin MLA has said.

Politicians attended a ceremony in Parliament Buildings to mark Armistice Day on Wednesday morning.

The national anthem was not on the event's order of service, but a Traditional Unionist Voice (TUV) press officer began the singing.

Chris Page reports.
