Fermanagh South Tyrone goes absolutely to the wire

I am hearing from the count for Fermanagh South Tyrone that the SDLP vote has collapsed and that for ages Michelle Gildernew was ahead. However, at the end Rodney Connor pulled back and finished 8 votes ahead. Sinn Fein entirely reasonably has demanded a recount. Update: recount Sinn Fein 2 ahead Further update: counting suspended until morning, Sinn Fein seeking legal advice. It seems to all come down to interpretations about the doubtful ballots.
