Claims:Youth Council members leave Council chamber over row

A County Councillor claims members of the Youth Council had to leave the council chamber in Lifford today due to the 'antics' of some members.

Independent Cllr. John Campbell has taken to Twitter to apologise for the scenes which he described as an 'utter disgrace'.

Youth Councillors were in the chamber today to get experience of how the local authority works.

We understand that there were angry exchanges when Frank McBrearty Junior took issue with a recent press release from Sinn Fein.

It is claimed that foul language was used in the chamber.

A spokesperson for the youth council has since claimed that they left the chamber on a scheduled lunch break.
