Mary Lou McDonald attacks Theresa May over talks stalemate

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald has accused Theresa May of "facilitating the DUP blocking" the restoration of power-sharing in Stormont.

Speaking after meeting UK Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street, Ms McDonald told BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg: "I believe, whether intentionally or not, Theresa May is actually facilitating the DUP blocking advancement and resolution on these core issues."

Talks aimed at restoring power sharing after a 13-month deadlock collapsed last week.
