A leading restaurant chain has apologised after it stopped a young mum feeding her baby in one of its Belfast outlets.

This is the Daily Mirror's story today. Lisa Wilson from Portstewart was told that she couldn't feed eight week old Oliver in Pizza Express at Victoria Square. She says the manager told her: "You cannot breastfeed in this restaurant."

Pizza Express has said it's sorry and that it welcomes breastfeeding across all of its restaurants. Doctors and midwives say breast is best for babies, but is it OK to feed your child in public? Or does that make some people feel uncomfortable?
