Sir Keir Starmer said he does not believe a border poll on a united Ireland is in sight.

In Londonderry as part of his three-day visit to Northern Ireland, the Labour leader told the Belfast Telegraph that any talk of a poll on the future of the island of Ireland is some way off, with health, education and the economy of more concern to people.
