The two most senior officers on Belfast City Council have lodged a formal grievance amidst controversy over the council's handling of Bobby Storey's cremation at Roselawn Cemetery.

The Belfast Telegraph can reveal that Chief Executive Suzanne Wylie, and Director of City and Neighbourhood Services Nigel Grimshaw, have warned that they may have to resign if their "concerns are not resolved".

They informed party group leaders at City Hall of the news on Wednesday.
