The Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) has launched its manifesto ahead of the 2019 General Election.

SDLP leader Colum Eastwood said withdrawal from the European Union was a roadblock in the way of future progress, and said his MPs would show up and try to block it in parliament.

Mr Eastwood said: "Turning your back on Brexit and ignoring it won't prevent it from happening.

"Preventing it means facing it head on - it means voting against it. It means voting for people who will go to work and vote against it."
