Video: Ulster Unionist Party to resign from NI Executive

The Ulster Unionist Party intends to leave the Northern Ireland Executive, the party's leader has said.

Mike Nesbitt made the recommendation during a meeting with senior party members.

Mr Nesbitt said he had chaired a meeting attended by the party's MLAs, MEP, MPs, senior representatives of its councillors association and its party chairman and they had endorsed his recommendation "unanimously.

He said the party's ruling body would make a final decision on Saturday and if it was supported then the party would form an opposition.
