What is the law on abortion in Northern Ireland?

This video has been removed for editorial reasons.

The Supreme Court has found Northern Ireland's abortion laws incompatible with human rights in cases of fatal foetal abnormality and sexual crime.

The case - brought by the Human Rights Commission - was dismissed on a technicality.

The court did not make a formal declaration, which would normally result in the law being changed.

BBC News NI looks at the current law surrounding abortion in Northern Ireland, and in what circumstances abortions can be performed.
