IRISH language enthusiasts dressed as crocodiles have held a protest outside the office of the DUP's Nelson McCausland.

Their protest comes a day after DUP leader Arlene Foster said she would"never" agree to an Irish language act.

She was speaking while launching the party's election campaign in Lurgan.

Referring to Sinn Féin demands for legislation Ms Foster said: "If you feed a crocodile it will keep coming back for more".

Their sign reads Acht Na Gaelige Anois which in English is 'Irish language act now'.
