Talks begin to end political stalemate in NIreland

British Northern Ireland Secretary Julian Smith said it was time to restore power-sharing at Stormont, the Northern Irish Assembly.

DUP leader Arlene Foster, Sinn Fein President Mary Lou McDonald also suggested their parties are looking to get the assembly working again.

The politicians made their remarks after talks with Northern Ireland's five biggest parties in Belfast, amid fresh hope the assembly could be working again early next year, more than 1,000 days after it's last session.

If a devolved executive is not up and running by 13th of January, legislation that gives the civil service extra powers to run public services will expire.
