"But I want to congratulate Elisha McCallion and to agree with her, that representing the people in this city is a privilege and it's one that I've enjoyed for the last 12 years," says the former SDLP leader.

"I want to apologise to John and Pat Hume if any shortcomings on my part, or the part of any of us, have led to any sense of there being a dent in the truth for which they endeavoured and indeed the truth of their endeavours.

"Their achievements and contributions to this city are not diminished by our result."

Rain doesn't dampen the vote - especially in Fermanagh and S Tyrone!
