Alliance Party leader to meet familes of Bloody Sunday victims this evening

David Ford is to meet with families of Bloody Sunday victims after he was criticised for calling the Saville Inquiry "pointless".

The Alliance Party leader, tipped to be NI justice minister, made the comment last November in a briefing note which was leaked to the BBC.

Sinn Fein had earlier called on him to meet with the families.

Mr.Ford confirmed to Highland Radio a short time ago, that he's to meet with the families of Bloody Sunday victims later this evening.
