Northern Irish power-sharing talks 'cancelled at last minute', party claims

Negotiations to reach a power-sharing deal in Northern Ireland have not taken place after they were cancelled last minute, one of the parties has claimed.

The parties have less than a fortnight left to reach a deal by 27 March, in order to save Stormont and prevent direct rule being imposed from London.

Key players were due to engage in round-table talks, including the local parties as well as representatives of both the British and Irish governments. However, leader of the Social Democratic and Labour Party, Colum Eastwood MLA, says the talks were cancelled at the last minute.
