Foster: No regrets not stepping aside as First Minister over 'cash for ash'

Arlene Foster says she has no regrets over not temporarily stepping down as first minister to avoid the collapse of powersharing.

Sinn Fein pulled the plug on the devolved executive in January 2017 when Mrs Foster refused to stand aside for six weeks to facilitate an investigation into her role in a botched green energy scheme.

The late Martin McGuinness resigned in protest at her decision – a move that precipitated the powersharing crisis, which has left Northern Ireland without a functioning government for almost three years.
