Watch: Alliance candidate refused count centre entry for 30mins with breast-fed baby

A breast-feeding mother and Assembly election candidate has been refused entry into a count centre with her baby.

Fay Watson had to wait outside the Mid Ulster count centre after initially being refused entry.

She told UTV: "I knew children under 12 were not allowed in - but thought in the case of breast-feeding women I'd be allowed in.

"So I had to wait outside for 30 minutes until they eventually let me in - which I am very grateful for."

The Electoral Office has been contacted for a comment
