The son of former deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has endorsed MLA Elisha McCallion for the position of Foyle MP.

Fiachra McGuinness joined the voices lending support to Mrs McCallion's campaign at the official launch at the Northwest Business Centre at Skeoge Industrial Estate last night.

Mrs McCallion was also endorsed by Philomena McLaughlin sister of Ethel Lynch, and Barrister Paul Foster.

Mrs McCallion is expected to be the main challenger to incumbent MP, the SDLP's Mark Durkan in the June 8 election.
