Arlene Foster takes over as NI First Minister

Northern Ireland's Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has taken over as First Minister for six weeks after Peter Robinson temporarily stepped down.

She said Mr Robinson would be using the time to "help deal with his wife's medical problems" and "will be seeking to clear his name" of allegations that he knew his wife obtained £50,000 from two developers but did not tell the proper authorities.
