Democratic Unionist Party special adviser Andrew Crawford, who has been accused of exerting influence in the Renewable Heating Initiative (RHI) scheme, has resigned.
Party leader Arlene Foster said she accepted his resignation with regret, referring to him as a "faithful servant" to the party and to Northern Ireland.
"Andrew has felt that given what occurred yesterday and indeed today that he was becoming a distraction to the important work of his minister, but indeed he was becoming the story," she said.
