The Executive in Stormont has agreed that non-essential retail and parts of the hospitality industry can reopen in Northern Ireland from next Friday.

Ministers met yesterday to discuss what restrictions should remain in place when the lockdown ends on the 11th December.

Pubs that don’t sell food will have to remain closed.

Speaking on BBC Newsline to confirm the relaxations, First Minister Arlene Foster said: “We’re trying to make sure people have a good Christmas and can come together in a safe way.”
