Police in the north are investigating after a bus was hijacked and set on fire in Co. Down this morning.
It happened on Abbot Drive in Newtownards at around 6:30am.
Officers say two masked men boarded the bus and poured fuel over it before setting it alight.
The driver managed to escape unharmed but was left badly shaken.
The PSNI's appealing for witnesses to contact them.
Condeming the incident, DUP leader Jeffrey Donaldson says terrorism will do nothing to remove the Northern Ireland protocol.
Belfast Telegraph crime correspondent, Allison Morris, says the bus driver was told it was linked to the Irish Sea border:
"As he was ordered off the bus, he was told it was in relation to the Northern Ireland protocol.
"Today is November 1st. This is the date that Jeffrey Donaldson said earlier this year that if there was no progress on the Protocol by the end of October and start of November he would pull his representatives out of the Stormont Assembly.
"I'm assuming the date is relevant to that.
