Arlene Foster accepts nomination as first minister

Stormont faces collapse despite the DUP's Arlene Foster accepting her party's nomination as first minister.

Moments after she accepted the nomination, Sinn Féin refused to put forward an individual for deputy first minister.

When nominating Mrs Foster, DUP MLA Maurice Morrow said no one would dictate who led the DUP and that in last year's assembly elections she received "the highest personal vote of any member of this house".
