VEHICLE spot checks and number plate recognition technology are said to be amongst the plans for a 'frictionless' post-Brexit border in Northern Ireland.
The British Government will lay out the plans in a position paper on maintaining a 'frictionless and seamless' border later today.
The position paper will recommend the spot checks of vehicles and technology instead of physical customs posts, according to Sky News.
Sinn Féin's Brexit spokesman, David Cullinane TD, branded the proposals "unworkable" and said the Prime Minister's party are prepared to use Ireland as "collateral damage" during EU negotiations.
But speaking to Sky, DUP leader Arlene Foster said technology is 'the answer.'
"What people forget was that the infrastructure that was put in place wasn't there to deal with customs. It was there to deal with a real threat from terrorism," she said.
