Luke Poots follows in father's footsteps

Luke Poots became the third generation of his family to serve as a councillor after he was elected in Lisburn and Castlereagh.

The DUP man follows in the footsteps of his father, Health Minister Edwin Poots, and his grandfather Charles Poots, both former councillors.Luke Poots spoke of his pride as the result came through on Friday afternoon."I'm delighted by the figures," he told UTV. "The area I was given, I managed to increase it by 2% so I brought more to the table than I expected to bring."I knew I was going in with not only my father's name but also my grandfather's name. There's always been a lot on my shoulders but if you've met my grandfather - we're well used to it."
