Bill Clinton, who helped reach a historic Northern Irish peace deal, has held talks with both sides in the hope of overcoming the current deadlock over power-sharing.

But the DUP says an exclusively Irish language act would ignore Ulster Scots speakers, who are mainly protestant.
The two sides must find a common language or face a return to direct rule, which is one outcome that neither side wants.
