Sinn Féin prepared to pull out of North government

Sinn Féin is threatening to collapse the North's government if policing and justice powers are not devolved to Stormont as promised.

Republicans are involved in talks with the DUP on the issue, but they now say they will pull Sinn Féin ministers out of government if there is no movement.

Sinn Féin's Caoimhghin O'Caolain told supporters at a republican commemoration in Co. Cavan that his party's patience should not be tested.

While there has been some progress on the transfer of policing powers, the issue remains unresolved and the parties are still divided on a number of matters.
