Sinn Féin's Martin McGuinness has insisted the only spy ring which operated out of Stormont was operated by British Intelligence Services.

McGuinness was speaking after prominent republican Denis Donaldson admitted working as a British agent for the past 20 years.

McGuinness said he does not know why Denis Donaldson did what he did, but he says the implications are enormous.
