Sinn Fein and the DUP will re-enter devolved government in Northern Ireland after three years of deadlock on Saturday.

The two parties have supported a treat to restore Stormont’s political institutions.

The British and Irish authorities wrote the draft proposals on Thursday, after nine months of talks.

Stormont’s power-sharing coalition, led by the DUP and Sinn Fein, crumbled in January 2017 over a dark-green power row.
