No agreement on potential extension of restrictions in North

 

The Stormont Executive has failed to reach agreement on a potential extension of Covid-19 restrictions in Northern Ireland.

Talks are to resume discussions this morning after they ended last night without a breakthrough.

A four-week circuit-break lockdown that's forced the closure of much of the hospitality sector is due to end at midnight on Thursday.

Member of the assembly Kellie Armstrong, says a decision is urgently needed on whether it will continue for another fortnight.
