Video: RHI scandal - Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness repeats call for Arlene Foster to step aside

Stormont's deputy first minister has called on Arlene Foster to "stand aside" as first minister while the 'cash-for-ash' scandal is investigated.

Martin McGuinness told a press conference. "There is no credibility whatsoever in an investigation established solely by the DUP or in the selective release of some documents by DUP departments."

"An independent investigation is the only way to establish the truth of what has occurred and to begin to restore public faith in these institutions."

He added: "The first minister should stand aside to allow the investigation to take place in as conducive an atmosphere as possible."
