Families left at the gates of Roselawn deserve answers

Only an impartial inquiry can get to bottom of Storey fiasco

Bobby Storey

Belfast City Council's internal report notes that Bobby Storey's hearse arrived at Roselawn Cemetery at 15.54 and that CCTV footage shows it leaving 24 minutes later.

Dissecting the details of somebody's cremation is an unsightly business. Sinn Fein gave the IRA leader a public funeral, but his cremation should have remained a private matter for his family and friends.

The only reason that justifies it being scrutinised is the disgraceful discrimination against eight ordinary families whom the council effectively made sit at the back of the bus.
