PSNI able to force people to return to home from today

 

The PSNI are able to force people to return to their homes in Northern Ireland from today.

New stay-at-home laws took effect at midnight - and people can only leave their houses for medical or food needs, exercise and essential work.

Gatherings are now capped at six people, compared to 15 previously.

Derry GP Tom Black is Northern Ireland chair of the British Medical Association - he says many people are breaking restrictions.
