A Northern Ireland manufacturer has had a business boost as sectors outside healthcare ramp up orders for its face shields.

Belfast's Crossen Engineering, which was set up in 1978 primarily serving the automotive industry, is part of a business collaboration making face shields for medical workers.

Today it is creating more than 70,000 shields per week and has expanded its customer base in the process.
