It's now 11 weeks since the last time Jolene Greer saw her husband Allen in person. Instead, she's counting the days until she can visit him again at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast as she stays in contact via video call.

Dad-of-three Allen (46) has been fighting for his life after suffering a terrible workplace fall in October and undergoing multiple surgeries. He had experienced setback after setback, but his family were always able to be there to hold his hand, until the pandemic reached Belfast.

Jolene (41) said her goodbyes to Allen after she realised lockdown was on the way with the announcement that cafes, pubs and other premises had to close.
