The North is to have its own version of the Criminal Assets Bureau, under legislation which will establish a counterpart to the investigative body throughout the UK.

A delegation from the Northern Assembly, headed by the SDLP's Alban McGuinness, visited the CAB headquarters today to examine its workings.
