Voters in the North have elected their first ever ethnic minority candidate, with the Alliance Party's Anna Lo winning an Assembly seat in South Belfast.
Ms Lo was declared elected shortly after midnight last night.
The Hong Kong-born politician has been active in promoting the rights of the Chinese minority in the North for more than a decade.
She is one of three Alliance candidates elected so far, with the party also claiming seats in Lagan Vallen and East Belfast.
Elsewhere, Dawn Purvis of the PUP has also defied expectations to retain the seat held by former party leader David Ervine in East Belfast.
