A date for the reopening of so-called 'wet pubs' which do not serve food is to be given as soon as possible, the Executive has confirmed.

Industry group Hospitality Ulster has said it hopes the venues will get the green light to reopen by the end of this month.

Pubs which serve food have now been trading for nearly three weeks - but Hospitality Ulster warned that some venues were flouting the rules of reopening.
