Alliance MLA Paula Bradshaw has made an early morning apology to Northern Ireland Attorney General John Larkin.

It is understood the apology relates to a retweet the South Belfast representative made in relation to a story on a woman who had to bring her baby home to Northern Ireland in a cooler bag following an abortion.

The original tweet has since been deleted and it is believed her apology comes after the the attorney general threatened legal action, the BBC reports.

Mrs Bradshaw, in tweets sent just after midnight on Friday, said she accepted the allegation in the tweet was "totally unfounded" and wrongly referenced Mr Larkin.
