DUP hopeful caught in controversy

This morning’s Sunday World breaks an embarrassing story for the DUP. Tensions are high between Northern Ireland’s gay community and the party. It seems that one of the DUP’s Westminster candidates, Paul Berry has been targeted by a gay activist, who arranged to meet with him in a Belfast hotel and taped some of the conversation. Berry denies there is anything more to the meeting than a massage for a sports injury.
