Trimble to seek support for plan to exclude SF

Ulster Unionist Party leader David Trimble is due to meet Irish Government officials today to discuss the ongoing fall-out from December's £26.5m (€38.3m) bank heist in Belfast.

Mr Trimble is expected to seek support for his proposal that Sinn Féin be excluded from politics in the North as punishment for the IRA's alleged involvement in the robbery.

The UUP leader has called on the British government to recall the Northern Assembly so MLAs can vote on a motion to exclude Sinn Féin from the body.

He said if this was not successful, London should use powers it granted itself two years ago to throw Sinn Féin out.
