Two inmates have ended a 10-hour rooftop protest at Magilligan Prison near Derry.

The prisoners climbed onto the roof yesterday while being moved across the prison yard and demanded talks with the Free Presbyterian chaplain.

One of the men involved is serving a sentence for robbery and the other for armed robbery.

The pair started a fire and threw tiles from the roof during the protest, but they ended the action voluntarily just after midnight.
