Sinn Fein's Adams says will not take up seats in Britain's parliament

The UK's voters have returned a hung Parliament following the general election.

The DUP was on course through the early hours of Friday morning to make gains in South Belfast and South Antrim.

The SDLP and UUP lost all their seats, with Michelle Gildernew toppling the UUP's Tom Elliot in Fermanagh South Tyrone.

The Conservatives, although the biggest party, now can not win an overall majority.

Speaking after his victory, Donaldson said the DUP "could be very influential" at Westminster once all the votes were counted.

"It is no surprise that the DUP have sided with the Tories", she added. On Brexit, he said the party would seek "the best deal possible" for both Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom as a whole.

Another eventful Game 4 of the NBA Finals for Draymond Green - even after it appeared he'd been ejected in this one. But then, out of nowhere, the officials changed the first tech to Steve Kerr, saying it had been that way all along.

"We fought this election on the importance of the Union and I think people really responded to that".

"But I won't support her in the position of First Minister while there's a cloud hanging over her".

Sinn Féin was the other the big victor, with the party poised to wrest the Foyle seat off the SDLP MP Mark Durkan.

Arlene Foster's ultra-conservative Northern Irish party believes in a "conscience clause" to protect religious people who want to discriminate against anyone who is LGBT.

History shows that "alliances between Ulster unionism and British unionism have always ended in tears", Sinn Féin president, Gerry Adams has warned, after it emerged the Democratic Unionist Party will support the Conservatives.

"There is no danger whatsoever of us taking our seats in the Westminster parliament", he said.
