Investigation unnecessary in border mistake

Published 18/02/2014

THE editorial in the Belfast Telegraph (Debate NI, February 14) about the PSNI driver who lost his way and inadvertently crossed the border into Lifford, correctly states: "It is not an international incident."

Former Donegal mayor Frank McBrearty is, therefore, greatly exaggerating when he describes it as such. It would be a sheer waste of taxpayers' money to investigate.

Now that all cross-border checkpoints have been removed, it is often very difficult for a driver to know exactly which side of the line he/she is on.
