Northern Ireland’s political leaders have urged Liz Truss to prioritise the restoration of power-sharing in Stormont and resolving issues caused by the Northern Ireland protocol.

Sinn Fein's Stormont leader Michelle O'Neill said that the UK government should not "pander to the DUP" as she called for an urgent meeting with Ms Truss.

By contrast, DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson said that Ms Truss should focus on resolving issues caused by the Northern Ireland protocol.
