Troubles murder probe funding row

Breaking News

The Government has been accused of failing to deliver on a pledge to fund an investigative unit re-examining murders from the Troubles.

Dave Cox, head of the Historical Enquiries Team, (HET) said last year's funding, worth £4m had to come out of the Chief Constable's policing budget.

This was despite a Government promise two years ago that it would provide £32m for the work over six years.

However, an NIO spokesman insisted the police had not lost out on funding.
