Arlene Foster has returned to the RHI inquiry to give her fourth day of evidence about the botched renewable heating scheme.

The DUP leader was the minister at Stormont's Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment when it set up the RHI scheme in 2012. Flaws in the scheme allowed participants to profit as the subsidies were paying out more than the cost of fuel.

Mrs Foster has denied any wrongdoing despite her department not putting in any cost controls into the scheme.
