Controversy: The funeral of Bobby Storey in Belfast

First Minister Arlene Foster has said no report will take away the hurt felt by families who were treated differently by Belfast City Council to those attending the cremation of Bobby Storey last year.

She was speaking following the publication of an independent report into the council's handling of the leading IRA man's service. The DUP, Ulster Unionists, Alliance and the SDLP said questions still remain over the matter.

Sinn Fein's Conor Murphy said he recognised that "trauma was added to the pain" felt by families, including Mr Storey's.
