Ministers in Northern Ireland have agreed a series of new measures aimed at bolstering adherence to Covid rules. MLAs met this morning to resume discussions on a range of proposals recommended by Health Minister Robin Swann.

It will also look at the potential of setting up a "scores-on-the-doors" type system to rate businesses on their compliance with rules and mitigations. Latest coronavirus stories
