DUP leader Arlene Foster has said she will not be seeking a seat in the next UK general election.There had been speculation that Mrs Foster could put her name forward in a bid to pull in voters in one of Northern Ireland's marginal constituencies. But she has now quashed any talk of a Westminster candidacy."I'll not be standing in the general election. My focus is very much on the return of devolution," she said.
