Video: New Belfast Lord Mayor Arder Carson wants to engage with all communities...and brush up on his tweeting

In his first day in office, Sinn Fein's Arder Carson said he was confident the super-council would usher in a "new era and new politics". Mr Carson, who was formerly a councillor in an area of Lisburn that has now been absorbed into the Belfast super-council, said politics in Belfast had already shown signs of "maturing" since 2012/13 and said further progress could now be made.

"I am very positive about it, I think we have matured as a city even over the last two years and the new council gives us new opportunities because we have new communities joining us."
