DUP chant Will Grigg's anthem 'Arlene's on fire' at end of conference

Just when you thought you had heard the last of the Will Grigg's chant, the DUP party faithful took to the stage at end of the annual conference.

Chanting 'Arlene's on fire' and jumping up and down, some of the younger members of the party surrounded First Minister Arlene Foster as she finished her keynote speech for the first time as party leader.

There was no false modesty from the DUP leader as she danced along to the chant, doing some fine 'mum' moves along the way.

Agriculture Minister Michelle McIlveen captured the moment in a tweet which has gone viral.
