The USPCA, Northern Ireland's biggest animal welfare charity, has launched an internal investigation into the "management" of the organisation.

The Ulster Society for the Prevention Cruelty to Animals, which received £96,075 in donations last year, would only give brief details of the probe.

A statement said: “The trustees of the USPCA have initiated an independent inquiry into aspects of the management of the charity.

"During this period the USPCA and its Animal Hospital will continue to fulfil its charitable commitments to the full.”

It is not known if any staff have been suspended during the course of the investigation.
