Northern Ireland is to extend the Halloween mid-term break for schools as part of a circuit break lockdown.

The North will go into a four-week lockdown in an attempt to curb the spread of covid-19.

The measures will come into effect this Friday.

As part of these, the hospitality sector will close except for takeaways and off-licenses will have to shut at 8PM each night.

Meanwhile, no more than 25 people are allowed at weddings and funerals.

First Minister Arlene Foster made the announcement this morning at a special sitting of the Northern Ireland Assembly.

Here, the government will make a decision today on whether to impose tougher Covid-19 restrictions in border counties as a result of the restrictions coming into effect this week in the north.
