Video: Cat-tastrophy at Stormont - Belfast Telegraph reporter delivers food for unlikely victims of political process collapse

The Belfast Telegraph mounted an attempt to deliver a food parcel to sustain Ginger, Maggie and Furby in their hour of need.

Arriving at the security entrance to Stormont House with a large bag of cat food and treats, we met a bemused security guard who appeared sympathetic to our aim.

However, the need to gain permission from a higher power meant that we spent nearly an hour standing at the gates wrangling with press officers.

Although our bid to gain access was thwarted due to "talks ongoing", we were able to deliver a bumper bag of cat food to ensure Stormont's newest stars wouldn't go hungry overnight.
