The legacy of the Royal Ulster Constabulary will be warmly praised by Theresa Villiers when she addresses the Police Federation conference later today.

The Secretary of State will also tell the PSNI officers that the lack of full powers for the National Crime Agency in Northern Ireland is “making life easier for very organised crime gangs”.

Ms Villiers is also expected to praise the “service and sacrifice” of the RUC and their families over many years, saying: “There are some who overlook or deny the contribution the RUC made to securing the relative peace and stability we have today.
