Belfast City Council is drafting bye-laws which could prevent anti-abortion groups displaying graphic images in parts of the city centre.

Alliance councillor Michelle Kelly, who has suffered three miscarriages, raised the issue with the council's legal services department, which is drawing up the proposals.

"One in four women suffer miscarriages and they should not have to be traumatised by graphic images of foetuses when they are shopping on a Saturday afternoon," she said.
