Martin McGuinness To Resign As Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland At 5PM

By Christian Smith

Martin McGuinness, Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister, is to resign in protest against the handling of a botched heating scheme that is likely to cost taxpayers £490m.

As of 17:00 clock today, McGuinness of Sinn Féin will no longer be Deputy Minister of Northern Ireland. This news was confirmed by Mark Devenport, @markdevenport the BBC Northern Ireland’s political editor.

Sinn Féin has said it will not replace Mr McGuiness, hence there will need to be a new election to the Northern Ireland Assembly.
