Brexit fears have led to a heritage railway carriage being brought across the border sooner than expected.

With continued uncertainty over what will happen after March 29, the Downpatrick & County Down Railway rushed to get the carriage across the frontier this week.

Railway chairman Robert Gardiner said: "We worked flat out to ensure we brought the vehicle to Downpatrick before the Brexit deadline. We didn't particularly like the idea of smuggling a railway carriage across the border."
