The SDLP could lose as many as five seats in next year's Assembly elections, it's been reported.

The prediction has been revealed in an internal party document.

It forecasts that the party will hold seats in Foyle and South Down.

But it also fears South Belfast could lose one of its MLAs by the time polls close next May.

The SDLP has not commented on the findings, which were reported by the Irish News.
