The DUP has been accused of using the flags issue to detract attention from the fallout over care home closure announcements.

SDLP Environment Minister Alex Attwood made the claim as it emerged five more Government-owned buildings will now fly the Union flag on designated days.

The buildings, which are under the control of DUP Finance Minister Sammy Wilson are the offices of the Department of the Environment in College Street, Goodwood House in May Street, Victoria Hall in may Street, Clare House on Airport Road West, and Rosepark House on the Upper Newtownards Road.
