Arlene Foster: DUP cannot vote for Brexit deal until 'one nation' policies secured

Arlene Foster has warned the Prime Minister the DUP will continue to say no to his Brexit deal unless he secures further concessions from Brussels.

Addressing her party conference in Belfast, Ms Foster demanded "honesty" from the Government after reflecting on Boris Johnson's speech to the same event last year, when he insisted he would not erect any new economic barriers in the Irish Sea.

Ms Foster joked that the DUP had now put Mr Johnson on the "naughty step" by voting against his government twice in the last week.
