Around 10 new jobs will be created after a security firm won a contract worth an undisclosed sum to guard empty Housing Executive homes.

Orbis, which is based in England, said the deal with the Housing Executive was its "biggest to date". It already employs 11 staff.

Orbis is to use steel doors and screens and alarms to secure any properties that fall vacant among the HE's stock of around 90,000 homes.

The company said the contract would be serviced from Orbis's Belfast depot but that a satellite depot would also be set up.

As a result of the deal, it would be doubling its workforce, the company said.

Orbis has already worked with the Housing Executive for around 20 years, the company added.
