Brexit: Uncertainty on Irish backstop leaves residents anxious

As Brexit negotiations continue, Irish residents are wary of a future with a potential hard border.

    A major sticking point in reaching a deal on Brexit has been the Irish backstop - a clause Theresa May agreed with the EU to prevent a hard border in Ireland.

    Working-class communities in Northern Ireland have already experienced years of economic hardship.

    They fear rising food and basic commodity prices could go up even further if the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
