‘British FBI’ starts N Ireland duty

The National Crime Agency (NCA) became fully operational in Northern Ireland today.

Officers working for the organisation dubbed the British FBI will be able to use the powers of a police constable and recover criminal assets from gangsters.

Sinn Fein opposed the extension of its remit because of concerns about accountability, which led to a long delay.
