SDLP grassroots in East Derry are divided over the party's selection of Cara Hunter to replace the late John Dallat at Stormont.

The Belfast Telegraph can reveal that both the former MLA's daughter, Councillor Helena Dallat O'Driscoll, and another local councillor, Stephanie Quigley, had sought the nomination.

Ms Quigley, who has been a councillor for seven years, did not secure an interview. Ms Hunter and Ms Dallat O'Driscoll, who were both elected as councillors last year, were interviewed via Zoom.
