Former mayor of Derry Pat Ramsey may lose Assembly seat

The SDLP Assembly Member and former mayor of Londonderry Pat Ramsey may not contest the next Assembly election.

He was not selected as a candidate at a party selection meeting on Friday night.

Councillors Helen Quigley and Mark H Durkan were selected to contest Foyle, along with a party aide, Pól Callaghan.

Mr Ramsey could still stand as a fourth candidate, if he is nominated by the party leader, Margaret Ritchie.
