The West Tyrone MLA and Policing Board member admitted to using an online dating site to arrange "stranger sex" and also sent nude pictures of himself - without being asked - to an undercover Sunday Life reporter.

He added: "Back to earth with a bump yesterday! My thanks to Audrey Adams and Lesley Vennard for their support and of course to all who have sent messages of support.

"Real life issues such as DLA renewals, DLA appeals, ESA appeals, Income Support, Carers Allowance and our first PIP application, complaints about roads and more!"

Hundreds of people reacted to the post, one said: "Good on you Ross, I told you it will all be forgotten by Tuesday."

"You will always have my support," added another, "Team Hussey all the way."
