Irish political party Fianna Fail has said it will seek to expel its former leader and Prime Minister Bertie Ahern in the wake of the Mahon Tribunal.

The tribunal found that Ahern failed to truthfully account for a number of financial transactions, but did not make a corruption finding against him.

Ahern said he had never "received a corrupt payment".

However, the party said the findings regarding Ahern constituted "conduct unbecoming a member of Fianna Fail".

The party said it would also seek to expel former minister Padraig Flynn who the tribunal found had "wrongly and corruptly" sought a donation from developer.
