Nationalism in NI: The state of play between the SDLP and Sinn Féin

In less than four months' time, a new Northern Ireland Assembly will be elected.

The leaders of three out of the five main parties are taking their parties into a Stormont election for the first time.

Colum Eastwood took charge of the Social Democratic and Labour Party late last year, and they go into the poll with 14 seats, whereas Sinn Féin have 29.

BBC News NI's political correspondent Chris Page assesses the state of play between the two main nationalist parties.
