Two major investments worth nearly £100m to extend film studios and build a new residential development are "under review" by developer Belfast Harbour as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it can be revealed.

And the city's biggest hotel company, Andras House, has also said it expects a new £19m aparthotel it's planned for Bedford Street to be delayed by six months.

Belfast Harbour intends to spend £45m on quadrupling the size of its film studios at Giant's Park and to invest up to £50m on a new buy-to-let residential development at City Quays 4.
