BBC Newsnight puts Northern Ireland politics in the dark

A BBC Newsnight election special from Northern Ireland was hit by major technical problems on Wednesday night.

The BBC show issued an apology after the lights in the Belfast studio faded in and out.

In a tweet, Newsnight said: "Apologies to our guests - and audience - for the tech probs with the studio lighting in Belfast.

"We hope it wasn't too distracting."

Alliance leader Naomi Long was one of the panellists. She said that "Newsnight brought a whole new meaning to party politics with its disco lighting"
