The Democratic Unionist Party has secured the chairmanship of nationalist-dominated Strabane District Council in Co Tyrone for the first time ever.

DUP councillor Thomas Kerrigan was unanimously elected as the town's mayor last night, with Sinn Féin supporting his candidacy in the interests of power-sharing.

The republican party is now calling for reciprocation in unionist-dominated councils like Ballymoney, Lisburn and Ballymena, where nationalists are routinely excluded.
