Video: New Secretary of State James Brokenshire to 'chart positive new course' for Northern Ireland outside of EU

Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire has said it is difficult to see how Northern Ireland and Scotland can remain in the EU.

He was speaking at his first official engagement at Belfast City Hall where he signed a book of condolence for the victims of the lorry attack in Nice.

He told reporters he would use his job to advocate the best interests of Northern Ireland at the heart of government.

The new cabinet minister, who was previously at the Home Office, said legacy issues would be one of his priorities.
