DUP MLA and MLA for East Londonderry Gregory Campbell has indicated he’s chosen to continue at Westminster rather than contest the forthcoming Assembly elections in May: MPs and TDs are barred from the Assembly under new legislation.

His decision to concentrate on Westminster opens up room for a new DUP contestant in East Londonderry.

Mr Campbell is the last MLA with a dual mandate.
