Orange Order men face action after RC funeral

Two Ulster Unionists, including the leader Tom Elliot, are to face disciplinary proceedings by the Orange Order for going to the Catholic funeral of murdered policeman Ronan Kerr.

The Orange Order in Northern Ireland formally forbids its members from attending Roman Catholic funerals.

The BBC's Garth Gordon outlines the complaints and Kate Carroll, whose husband worked as a policeman and was killed by dissident Republicans, gives her opinion of the case.
