The Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly, Mr William Hay MLA, has expressed his sadness at the death of MLA David McClarty.

Speaker Hay said: "I know I speak on behalf of all members of the Assembly when I say that the loss of David McClarty is a cause of heartfelt sorrow among all of us.

"I had the pleasure of working with David for many years and particularly closely during his time as a Deputy Speaker. David was extremely able and determined fighter for all he believed in but he combined it with a brilliant wit which enabled him to develop friendships on all sides of the House. I will particularly miss that sense of humour and the Assembly will miss a true parliamentarian.

"My thoughts and prayers go to his family at this sad time."
