NI parties to announce Stormont ministers

The new ministerial line-up for the Northern Ireland Assembly is due to be announced at Stormont in the next hour.

It is expected the DUP will appoint ministers to four departments including Finance and Enterprise, both of which the party held during the last assembly term.

They will also take over Health from the Ulster Unionists and Social Development from the SDLP.

Sinn Féin ministers are expected to take up Education and Agriculture once again, as well as Culture, Arts and Leisure, previously held by the DUP.

The other three parties will each hold one ministerial post.
