Health Minister Robin Swann has announced two public inquiries into the neurology scandal and the work of a consultant urologist in the Southern Trust.

Addressing the Assembly on Tuesday, Mr Swann revealed there will be a public inquiry into the clinical practice of retired urologist Dr Aidan O’Brien.

And towards the end of his speech, he also told MLAs that he has upgraded the independent neurology inquiry to a public inquiry.
