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.
