Channel 4 has "compounded the grief of a widow" after airing an interview with the convicted murderer of her police officer husband, an Ulster Unionist MLA has said.

Brendan McConville was jailed in 2012 for killing Constable Stephen Carroll three years previously, alongside co-convicted John Paul Wootton.

Last Thursday night, during the national broadcaster's main news programme, Mr McConville spoke to a reporter via telephone from Maghaberry Prison.
