Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) leader has been discharged from hospital.

Peter Robinson, 66, was admitted to Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital on Saturday as a "precautionary measure" after reacting to medication.

A DUP spokesman said he would be fit enough to attend crucial talks to resolve the political crisis engulfing the powersharing political institutions at Stormont today.

He said: "Mr Robinson expresses his gratitude to the medical staff who treated him so professionally during his short stay in hospital and the ambulance staff who were the first responders."
