Alliance has accused the DUP and Sinn Fein of a "sectarian carve up" over an £8m neighbourhood regeneration fund for Belfast.

Councillor Michael Long said his party opposed a new Shankill fund and criteria which he claimed would see East and South Belfast lose out on almost £650,000 of funding.

Alliance opposed the moves but they were approved at a meeting of City Hall's powerful strategic policy and resources committee meeting and are due to be ratified at tonight's council meeting.
