Checkpoints and cameras on the Irish border will be a target for attack by terrorist groups in Northern Ireland, the deputy chief constable for the region has said.
Drew Harris said there is still a significant level of terrorism in Northern Ireland that does not get reported by the media with 58 shootings and 32 bombing incidents this year so far.
The UK has said there will be no infrastrucure on the border, that would be an obvious place for dissident groups to rally around and also to attack.

Boris Johnson, the foreign secretary, is delivering his speech on the war against terror now. I will post highlights when I have seen the text, but if he takes questions, I will cover that in detail.
