Police blame dissident republicans for Northern Ireland bomb attack

The Prime Minister has been speaking to his Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar by telephone this evening.

As well as discussing plans for Brexit, the two leaders also addressed this morning’s explosion in County Fermanagh.

Northern Ireland police say dissident Republicans are to blame for the blast near the Irish border, which they called a ‘reckless and indiscriminate’ attempt to murder police officers.
