Northern Ireland's political deadlock have a new deadline of 29 June, extending the talks beyond the general election.

This is the fourth time talks on forming a power-sharing government have been extended .

Three earlier deadlines have fallen by the wayside amid disagreements between the Democratic Unionist party and Sinn Féin.

The move gives Stormont's rowing parties a three-week window to strike a deal after the election.
