Some ports and airports in Northern Ireland may be wide open to the smuggling of drugs and illegal goods like cigarettes.

The warning comes in an independent report into the work of the UK Border Agency in Northern Ireland.

The report said that there was too much concentration on passport control at the expense of preventing smuggling.
