David Cameron has warned voters in Northern Ireland of the potential economic impact of Brexit as he continued a tour of the UK, setting out the case for staying in the European Union (EU).

During a visit to Co Antrim on Saturday, the Prime Minister said the country's economy and farming industry were too closely linked to the EU to risk the "leap in the dark" of voting to quit the 28-nation bloc.

Speaking to locals at Ballybollen House farm in Ahoghill during his visit, Mr Cameron stressed the importance of EU membership to the industry.

"Many of those who want to ask you to vote to leave are actually not really sure whether they want to leave or not," he said.

"I think it should set alarm bells going in the minds of voters about the potential risks we face if we leave."
