The UTV election debate was hit by technical glitches on Sunday night - with some viewers saying some of the subtitles were unreadable.

People took to Twitter to point out a series of typos and unfathomable sentences on the graphics during the broadcast.

One exchange with SDLP leader Colum Eastwood said: “Scaption all speak at once # Let my shell finish”.

He was also subtitled as saying “to speak on MAFF of the -- peek on behalf of people”.

Alliance leader Naomi Long was quoted saying: “These are not green Ortega angled brush issues”.

Steve Aiken appeared to say: ”Here std problems we have”.

And Sinn Fein’s Michelle O’Neill was subtitled saying: “We made a Prom Nis 2017.”
