Cabinet ministers have given the green light for restaurants and pubs that serve food to open next week.

This will be a three stage re-opening.

Next Tuesday December first will see retail, gyms, hairdressers, barbers, museums and cinemas allowed to open.

Cabinet has approved then the re-opening of restaurants and gastropubs from next Friday, with the meeting discussing changes to the rules around dining indoors.

Finally, the third stage will be when people are allowed to travel outside their county and visit other people's homes.

That's likely to start on December 18th until a few days into January.

However, Christmas gatherings will come with guidelines.

The Government will recommend not hugging or shaking hands with your guests.

Whoever is cooking Christmas dinner will also be told to wear a facemask while preparing and serving food.

People will also be told if they intend to have gatherings at Christmas to limit their contacts from now.

The Cabinet meeting is ongoing, with an announcement around 6pm this evening
