Sinn Fein MEP Martina Anderson: We don't want border

Sinn Fein MEP Martina Anderson has said if English votes "drag us out of the EU that would be like Britannia waves the rules", as she raised concerns over a border between Northern and the Republic of Ireland.

Speaking in the European Parliament, she said: "We accept, we respect and we will defend the wishes of the people of the north of Ireland.

"However if English votes drag us out of the EU, that would be like Britannia waives the rules.

"There was a democratic vote, we voted to remain. I tell you, that the last thing the people of Ireland need is an EU border with 27 member states stopped right in the middle of it."
