Residents are now returning to their homes in #Portadown, County Armagh, after a suspected gas leak.

Road closures were in place at Bridge Street with police & emergency services in attendance but the road has since reopened

#NorthernIreland #UK #Social
Portadown Town Hall had been open for those residents who were moved from their homes.

The NI Fire and Rescue Service @NIFRSOFFICIAL were also at the scene with three appliances in attendance.
In a PSNI statement on Thursday night, a spokesperson said: "A number of homes in the area have been evacuated. Please avoid the area if possible."

Shortly after 11 pm, PSNI said the road had reopened and residents were being allowed to return to their homes.

WATCH: #BNNNewsroom Reports.

Irish Prime Minister @LeoVaradkar has said that the protocol imposed on Northern Ireland without the support of unionists & nationalists is regrettable.

#Ireland #NorthernIreland #EU #UK #Politics #Economy
He said in a recent interview held during World Economic Forum @wef in @Davos that the measure was working but said he understood why unionists felt it had "weakened the union".
Since its implementation in 2021, the protocol, which keeps Northern Ireland in line with some EU trade rules after Brexit, has been a source of contention.

Unionists argue that it undermines Northern Ireland's place within the United Kingdom.

This progress is positive. The killer will most likely be known to Natalie, yes. BUT police saying he is not a risk to other women is utter nonsense. He murdered a woman who was pregnant. Of course he is a risk to other women ๐Ÿšฉ EVERY woman knows this. I really wish ImageImage
Men would stop saying ridiculous things like this & focus on whatโ€™s important. Appeal to those who know this man. Someone knows him. Listen to the Community intell. Iโ€™m hearing that a former partner was stalking Natalie. Do the house-to house, speak to those who knew Natalie &
those whom she confided in. Speak with her family, friends, check social media etc. Thereโ€™s lots to do in the star burst of a murder. This man is a public protection risk ๐Ÿšฉ Any man who murders a woman is. Help find him. Perhaps you saw the man with the rucksack?

Can you help find Natalie McNallyโ€™s killer? Natalie was 15 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. She was stabbed to death in her home in Lurgan Northern Ireland on Sunday 18 December. This man carrying a rucksack arrived at Silverwood Green near Natalieโ€™s home at 852pm.
He was seen leaving Silverwood Green at 930pm. @PoliceServiceNI are appealing for phone/video footage, CCTV, car dash-cam footage, photos, any information that can help find him. Also, thereโ€™s a golf course close to Natalieโ€™s house which leads to the M1 Motorway.
Perhaps you saw the man with the rucksack around this time? Do you recognize his gait in the video? Or maybe you know someone locally who was acting strangely after Natalieโ€™s murder. You can upload info anonymously here mipp.police.uk/operation/PSNIโ€ฆ or

NEW: #EUโ€™s chief #Brexit negotiator has urged the new #UK Prime Minister to โ€engageโ€ with talks on the #NorthernIreland Protocol.

@MarosSefcovic says this call has been made "for over a year."

"And it still stands โ€“ also vis-ร -vis the incoming UK Prime Minister & government.โ€
The European Commission Vice President was speaking at the British-Irish Association Conference in Oxford.

He repeated the EUโ€™s criticism of the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill, describing it as a โ€œclear breach of international lawโ€ that is โ€œextremely damaging to mutual trust.โ€
He also warned against further unilateral action โ€“ likely hinting at reports that frontrunner, Liz Truss, could trigger #Article16.

Such action may, he said, โ€œGive the impression to many in the EU that the UK leadership is not that interested in cooperation with the EU.โ€

PM: โ€œAn attack on a nuclear power plant or an explosion are clearly a matter of our common European health and safety. We remember what happened with Chernobyl, the radioactive clouds spread over the whole continent, and indeed, also to North America. There is clearly a risk.โ€
PM: โ€œThere are other Ukrainian plants and radioactive nuclear waste sites. We need to consider is how we're going to work together to prevent such a disaster. I don't think the answers are easy, but UN and the IAEA on the ground", he invokes, "areย going to be extremely importantโ€

Response from EU re UK #NorthernIreland protocol

โ€œThe European Commission has been working tirelessly with the UK government to address practical challenges related to the implementation of the Protocol.
โ€œThe decision by the NI Min for Agriculture is therefore unhelpful. It creates further uncertainly and unpredictability for businesses and citizens in Northern Ireland. The European Commission will closely monitor developments in Northern Ireland pursuant to this announcement.โ€
It recalls the responsibility of the UK Government for the respect of the international obligations it has entered into.
ยท The Protocol is the one and only solution we have found with the UK to protect the Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement.

@trussliz @MarosSefcovic @ManufacturingNI @FT Since July the number of @ManufacturingNI members "struggling" with the protocol has dropped below 25pc...compared to more than 40pc in July. It's moving in the right direction, it seems./2
@trussliz @MarosSefcovic @ManufacturingNI @FT The survey, to be published Friday, also shows EU suppliers are getting easier (last year it seemed that many hadn't got full message that Northern Ireland is part of EU single market for goods) and trade with GB has also picked up/3

In todays @FT thereโ€™s an op-ed from @DavidGHFrost outlining the state of play in the talks around the #NorthernIreland Protocol & contrary to a lot of reports (that mostly treat ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ pronouncements as gospel while ignoring ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ones) thereโ€™s been little change
ft.com/content/5030f7โ€ฆ
In essence the #NorthernIreland Protocol is unfinished (it was always a dynamic document) & ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง is seeking to bring it to where it was envisioned to be, as outlined here by @LeoVaradkar in January 2020, as well as excise the bits obviated in the TCA
Alas ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ still seems to have very little interest in living up to their responsibilities & honouring what they signed

Unfortunately for them ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง sovereignty is absolute & Brusselsโ€™ authority runs out at The Border

They may have to learn that the hard way

I see ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ decision making is as unhinged from reality a usual

They canโ€™t possibly make a decision until on something like this until they have full access to ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง databases rather than use something else like say basic maths

#NorthernIreland
The total value of ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ imports is ~$2tn/yr according to @WorldBank

Total exports from #NorthernIreland to ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ are ~$10bn/yr or 0.5% of total ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ imports

Even the GDP of NI (~$60bn) is only the equivalent of 3% of ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ total imports
As you can see #NorthernIreland being any sort of risk to ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ Single Market is mathematically impossible but ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บโ€™s infantile zero risk obsession prevents them from seeing this

Exactly ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง & ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ knew exactly what they were signing & were signing from the same hymn sheet on how the #NorthernIreland Protocol.

Well until 1st February 2020 when ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ took a very different view & took a much harsher, impractical interpretation.

#Newsnight
Hereโ€™s @LeoVaradkar talking to @bbclaurak on 27th January 2020 saying the exact same thing that @BorisJohnson was saying about how the #NorthernIreland Protocol should operate.

Sounds eerily similar to the ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งโ€™s Command Paper from July 2021
As the text #NorthernIreland Protocol was a broad legal blunt instrument to work this out required a lot of finessing in the Joint Committee.

Alas ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ dragged their feet on appointing a representative & subsequently boycotted discussions to all intents & purposes.

@SDLPlive @BrianTierney09 ยฃ22k, @BrianTierney09 @columeastwood? Did you consult with @RNIBNI @guidedogsni before installing crossings that are confusing to guide dogs, putting visually impaired pedestrians in danger? Where was the due diligence?
"Rainbow-coloured pedestrian crossings are not safe for disabled people, older people or children and could exacerbate hallucinatory conditions, including for those with psychosis, campaigners warn." Not so 'welcoming' after all. #gesturepolitics
