Economy Minister Diane Dodds has called for the government to work with UK retailers to prevent any more household names from withdrawing their delivery services to NI.

It comes as new checks and documentation required by hauliers to cross the Irish Sea as part of the NI Protocol following the end of the transition period caused confusion among businesses.

Customers here of firms like Debenhams, Dunelm, TK Maxx and John Lewis have all said they've been notified that deliveries have been delayed - with some orders for TK Maxx cancelled. John Lewis and Dunelm have since said they will restore deliveries, but TK Maxx has not yet said whether cancelled orders will be honoured.
