MP honours nun's bravery

The DUP's Strangford MP, Jim Shannon (below), has signed a Commons motion marking the life of a Catholic nun who spent six years hiding at a French convent during the Second World War.

Sister Anne Green passed away earlier this month in Dundee at the age of 100.

The motion "pays homage to her bravery in evading capture by the Nazis during the occupation of France and her commitment to the Church and Dundee after the war."
