“Scottish rashers off the menu..”

This morning Mark Devenport noted the tale of the tartan rashers in the Assembly canteen. But by this afternoon everything had changed.. utterly..

The Stormont bacon butties saga is a fast moving story. This morning diners were tucking into their rashers safe in the knowledge that they came from across the Irish Sea. This afternoon the BBC was about to interview the canteen chef about an award they have won for their catering operation. However we had to pull our crew at the last minute when we were told that any questions about pork were definitely off the menu.
