There was a mixture of nerves and excitement among parents and pupils at the school gates on Monday morning.

While some parents expressed concern about the safety of their children returning to education, others felt the time was right to get them back in the classrooms.

Among those glad to see schools opening their doors for the first time since March was Angeline Kelly whose daughter Eliza (9) was starting in P6 at Moyle Primary School in Larne.
