The DUP leader designate Edwin Poots is set to begin one-to-one meetings with the party's MLAs on Monday, ahead of an anticipated ministerial reshuffle.

It is understood he wants to consult the DUP assembly team on a range of internal issues.

He also plans to reassure colleagues who backed Sir Jeffrey Donaldson in Friday's leadership election.

Mr Poots is not due to take over as leader until Arlene Foster steps down on 28 May.

He has said he is keen to ensure a smooth transition.
