DescriptionArlene Foster will quit the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) when she stands down as Northern Ireland's first minister, BBC News NI understands.

Sources close to her said she thinks it is no longer the party she joined and it is moving in a different direction.

Mrs Foster is to resign as DUP leader on 28 May and end her tenure as first minister at the end of June.

On Thursday, Agriculture Minister Edwin Poots declared his intention to stand for the party leadership.

By Friday evening five of the party's Northern Ireland Assembly members and one of its MPs had publicly announced their support for his campaign.
