BBC debate: 'The voice from Northern Ireland was missing'

North Belfast MP Nigel Dodds said the voice of Northern Ireland MPs had been missing from a televised debate between party leaders.

Mr Dodds, who is the DUP leader at Westminster, told the BBC, "We have more seats than some that were debating tonight,".

He also said the absence of Prime Minister David Cameron may have benefited Labour leader Ed Miliband.

He said that his party could work with either Labour or the Conservative party in the future.
