Who is in charge of Northern Ireland after Martin McGuinness resigned as second minister?

The Northern Irish executive is still in charge and ministers will be in their jobs, but won't be able to make big decisions until the future of the NI assembly is sorted out. Because of the power-sharing arrangement, when McGuinness quit, the first minister Arlene Foster loses her position too. A quick election is likely but if the dispute between McGuinness's Sinn Fein and Foster's DUP can't be solved, Northern Ireland could be run from London.
