The owner of Ballymena bus maker Wrightbus is eyeing setting up hydrogen production in Northern Ireland, it can be revealed.

Jo Bamford, chairman of Wrightbus and founder of hydrogen firm Ryse, took over the reins of the bus firm in 2019 when it entered administration.

The company is now producing around 20 new zero-emission hydrogen buses for Translink in Northern Ireland. It's also supplying 80 new electric vehicles.
