Sinn Fein assembly member Alex Maskey is recovering after suffering a minor heart attack.

Mr Maskey was brought to hospital after he fell ill on Christmas Day.

The party said in a statement that the South Belfast MLA remained in a stable condition and was now resting.

The 53-year-old, who became Sinn Fein's first lord mayor of Belfast in June 2002, was said to be responding well to treatment in hospital.
