Martin McGuinness says Sinn Féin will veto BREXIT if they can find a legal way to do so.

The North's Deputy First Minister says the British Government doesn't care about people in Northern Ireland.

People in Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to remain in the referendum.

Mr McGuinness' conceded that a hard border between the Republic and Northern Ireland will be hard to avoid.

He says Sinn Féin's looking at the options available to them: "Yes, we are looking at it in the moment, and our legal advisors are also looking at it. Also in the context of the implications of the Good Friday Agreement, and if there's some way for us to legally veto it, we in Sinn Fein will veto it."
