Speaking ahead of her visit she said: "We are confident that we will secure a good deal for the whole of the UK, and we are working towards finalising this with the EU in the autumn.

"As we do, we will ensure that our departure from the EU does not do anything to set back the historic progress we have made in Northern Ireland over the past 20 years, and that the Belfast Agreement is protected in all its parts as set out in the December Joint Report."
