Outgoing MP Tom Elliott sees himself as the “underdog” in next month’s Westminster election but said he expects to pick up votes from across the community.

“People must realise Brexit is going to happen. It has been voted by the people of the United Kingdom so it is going to happen,” said the UUP candidate.
