Pubs and restaurants in Northern Ireland will close to the public for four weeks as part of a month-long “circuit breaker” lockdown, first minister Arlene Foster has announced.

Schools will also shut for two weeks, extending the half-term Halloween break by a week in a bid to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Pubs and restaurants will be allowed to stay open for takeaways.
