Roads minister Danny Kennedy has committed to replacing Northern Ireland (NI) signs that were stolen after being introduced to the Fermanagh border.

Two of the notices, which read "Welcome to Northern Ireland", were taken down in the Newtownbutler and Rosslea areas, whereas an ineffective effort was made to remove one in Belcoo, reports the Belfast Newsletter.

Speaking to the news provider, Mr Kennedy stated: "On safety grounds it is important for tourists travelling into Northern Ireland from the Republic to know that they are in a different country, where the speed restrictions are in miles rather than kilometres."

He added that more of the signs need to be put up in other counties of Northern Ireland.

Phil Flanagan, Sinn Fein MLA for Fermanagh and South Tyrone recently criticised the signs, describing them as a waste of money.

Mr Flanagan believes that the notices go against advice from the tourist board.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801425391-ADNFCR
