DUP leader Peter Robinson has been admitted to hospital

His party says it’s “a precautionary measure”.

FORMER FIRST MINISTER of Northern Ireland Peter Robinson has been admitted to hospital.

The DUP leader is in hospital “as a precautionary measure” according to his party.

A statement from the DUP said that the 66-year-old “had a reaction to some medication” but is now “doing well and will be discharged soon”.

The DUP leader was also hospitalised in May after a suspected heart attack.

Robinson recently stepped aside from the senior position in the Northern Ireland executive amid the ongoing political controversy .

Robinson had also sent a legal letter to Independent TD Mick Wallace during the week threatening him with legal action.
