Taxpayers to pay £350m for NI / GB border, despite assurances there won't be one.

Cabinet Minister, Michael Gove announced the investment while on a visit to the province on Friday.

Questions have been raised however on why so much is being spent mitigating a border in the Irish Sea, when the government continues to claim no such border will ever exist.
