Schools in North to remain closed for foreseeable future

 

Schools are to remain closed in Northern Ireland for the foreseeable future.

The Stormont Executive will meet today to finalise a tightening of the current six-week lockdown.

It will include an extended period of remote learning and new rules on travel.

First Minister Arlene Foster says stay-at-home laws will also be re-introduced, after being in place during the first wave.
