A nurse has spoken of her anger about the row over military aid for hospitals here, saying it was not a political issue, but a matter of "life or death".

Edel Coulter, who works at Belfast City Hospital, was one of hundreds of staff who hit out after trade union Unison queried the decision by the Health Minister.

Unison said it had not been consulted by Robin Swann on the issue and would be asking for detailed reasons for the move.
