The Late Late Show

The candidates, party workers and journalists at the East Belfast must be tired... but spare a thought for the poor folks actually counting the ballots. Would you fancy having to work out the equations at this point? Thought not. Nah, neither would we.

East Belfast

Had two, have two

The Alliance Party has held its two seats in East Belfast. Naomi Long is back to Stormont after her spell at Westminster. Chris Lyttle returns for another term at the assembly.

Stewart Dickson (Alliance) and Alistair Ross (DUP) are expected to claim the fourth and fifth seats but then it is very tight between Oliver McMullan (Sinn Féin), Noel Jordan (UKIP) and John Stewart (UUP).

The big casualty of the day, however, was Sinn Féin’s Phil Flanagan (pictured above), who was eliminated in the fourth round.

West Tyrone

The story so far

Not too much of a story so far, no one's yet been elected. So expect the count staff to be busy later today.

DUP hit 30 seats

DUP have reached the magic 30 seats number - it means the party can trigger a petition of concern by themselves. Effectively allows them to block a bill.
