Stephen Sackur talks to Sir Hugh Orde, Chief Constable of the Police Service Northern Ireland.
In Northern Ireland there is mounting concern over dissident conflict. In recent months dissident Republicans have stepped up their campaign of violence, and squabbles between Unionist and Republican political leaders have stymied self-rule.
