A DUP Assemblyman has faced a backlash for welcoming the permanent closure of a well-known nightclub.

Jim Wells caused controversy on Thursday with a comment on Facebook about Coach Nightclub in Banbridge folding.

"Many local residents will be relieved to learn of the permanent closure of The Coach nightclub in Banbridge," said Mr Wells, who no longer holds the DUP whip.
