Foster Brexit plea at Scottish parade

By David Reed

Arlene Foster has made a plea for certainty on Brexit.

She said that two years after the referendum, people wanted direction on the way forward.

The DUP leader was speaking in Scotland before she addressed an Orange parade in Fife. She was the main speaker at the Cowdenbeath event, organised by the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland.

On Brexit certainty, Mrs Foster said: "I think most people want to see that now. We're two years after the referendum. It's important that we get that certainty soon.

"It takes two to tango and we need the European Union to step up to the plate and to recognise that Brexit is happening, so let's make it a good Brexit for us, and a good Brexit for the European Union as well."

Police Scotland said the march was attended by around 4,000 people, without major incident.
