Sinn Fein MLA Barry McElduff ventures through 'DUP territory' to get to Stormont vending machine

A Sinn Fein MLA has ventured through "no man's land" into "DUP territory" all in a quest to get to the vending machine at Stormont.

Barry McElduff posted a video of himself on Stormont's third floor on his mission to get to the vending machine for a Snickers bar.

The video has been viewed more than 58,000 times.

Posting the video he said: "Some people have to go through serious ordeals to get their Snickers. Me, I have to cross deep into DUP territory on Stormont's third floor."

The MLA, standing on the Sinn Fein side described the two areas as a bit like "East Germany and West Germany" and referenced the section in between as "no man's land".

He said: "This is the Sinn Fein side on the third floor and way down there is DUP territory, it's a bit like East Germany and West Germany.

"But that's where I have to go to get my snickers because the vending machine is in DUP territory."

He then travels along further and said: "I'm in no man's land now between the two areas."

As he walks along to the vending machine he narrates the journey and shows the offices belonging to Sinn Fein and DUP MLAs.

The video prompted hundreds of comments and was shared more than 200 times.
