Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness has been re-elected as MP for Mid-Ulster with 21,239 votes.

Ian McCrea of the DUP was second with 5,876 votes.

Tony Quinn, SDLP, polled 5,826 votes, Sandra Overend, Ulster Conservatives and Unionists - New Force, 4,509, Walter Millar, TUV, 2,995 and Ian Butler, Alliance Party, 397.

Mr McGuinness said that it had been a stunning campaign in the constituency.

"We in Sinn Fein put ourselves forward in elections because we are Irish republicans, because we are political activists because our primary political objective is to bring about the peaceful and democratic reunification of our country," he said.

"It's about representing people it's about being in government as I am - working with my colleagues in the DUP, Ulster Unionists and the SDLP, I am a firm believer in people working together."
