1 Mins read

A meeting of the powersharing Executive has begun at Stormont during which ministers are expected to consider the introduction of a series of localised Covid-19 restrictions in Northern Ireland.

The PA news agency understands the greater Belfast area could be subject to tightened measures to clamp down on increasing cases of coronavirus.

Postcodes are anticipated to be used to delineate where the beefed-up restrictions will apply.

Despite the rise in case numbers in the region, ministers are also still set to discuss a provisional date for reopening wet pubs in Northern Ireland.

First Minister Arlene Foster and deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill are expected to deliver a joint press briefing after this afternoon’s meeting – the first since the political row over Ms O’Neill’s attendance at the funeral of IRA veteran Bobby Storey at the end of June.
