Theresa May arrives in Fermanagh for Northern Ireland border visit

Theresa May has arrived in Northern Ireland for a two-day visit, starting her trip in Belleek, Co Fermanagh.

It is the Prime Minister's first visit to the province since the Brexit referendum in 2016, and will see her meet with business delegations and political leaders.

Mrs May has come under fire for failing to make an earlier visit the UK's only land border with the EU, and Sinn Fein has branded the visit "too little, too late".

Addressing the press on Thursday, Sinn Fein's leader in Northern Ireland Michelle O'Neill said: “Theresa May needs to realise that we will not be collateral damage her for own reckless Tory agenda.”

Arlene Foster welcomed the arrival of Theresa May and said her party wanted a "sensible exit from the EU".

The Prime Minister will travel onwards to Belfast on Friday.
