Euro election: Counting suspended at close to 1am

Waiting for Video...

Counting was suspended shortly before 1am this morning, almost 16 hours after it had begun.

There is expected to be several more hours of counting before the final make-up of the three MEPS is confirmed: Martina Anderson, Diane Dodds and Jim Nicholson.

A small number of politicians and observers were still there when the count was wrapped up for the night, including the SDLP’s Alex Attwood, who is not expected to secure enough transfers to be elected.

Counting will resume at 9am.
