Ms. Anderson said: “Brexit will be damaging to us, to our economy, to our environment, to our rights. It will have a huge impact on young and old and on so many aspects of our lives.

“The majority of people here voted to Remain and that is what we must ensure happens.

“I have met with so many community groups, businesses, schools and it is vital that everyone across society understands what Brexit means so that we can all stand together to demand that we remain within the EU. Sinn Féin has set out its case for a special designated status for the north within the EU and we are actively seeking support for that.”
