DescriptionLagan Valley MLA Basil McCrea has said it is likely that he and John McCallister will set up a new party to challenge the DUP and the UUP.

Both men have quit the Ulster Unionist Party over the decision of the party to support a unionist unity candidate in the Mid-Ulster by-election.

Nigel Lutton - the son of a former RUC reservist shot dead by the IRA in 1979 - will be the candidate.

Mr McCrea said he had "no confidence" in Mike Nesbitt as leader of the UUP.
