A large majority of Unionists believe that Northern Ireland will still be part of the United Kingdom in 30 years time according to a poll undertaken by the Belfast Telegraph.

The online LucidTalk survey also found that 97pc of Sinn Fein and SDLP voters think Northern Ireland will not be part of the UK in the same period of time.

Meanwhile, 68pc of Green Party and Alliance voters think that Northern Ireland will split from the UK in the next three decades.

67pc of DUP voters agreed that the Northern Ireland protocol, which was established in order to prevent a hard border island of Ireland, will eventually damage the Union from within, while 72pc believe the Union will still remain intact.

85pc of Alliance and Green Party voters said they think the protocol will weaken the Union.

54pc of overall voters said they believe Northern Ireland will have left the UK by 2050.

The poll took into consideration the opinions of 2,295 people and was undertaken late last month with the sample weighted to reflect the population.
