Jim Allister: TUV's hand 'strengthened' by vote

27 May 2014 Last updated at 18:52 BST

The TUV leader Jim Allister has said his "hand has been strengthened" by the number of votes he received in the European election.

He said every single vote he received represented those "who haven't bowed the knee to Sinn Féin" and those that "haven't bowed the knee to Sinn Féin/DUP misrule".

He was speaking after Sinn Féin's Martina Anderson, the DUP's Diane Dodds and the UUP's Jim Nicholson were declared elected.
