£20 party nights 'make Belfast Holyland a Covid hotbed'

Holyland residents have claimed that young people are coming from all over Northern Ireland to party and illegally stay in the south Belfast student houses for £20 a night.

Brid Ruddy said the area was now "a hotbed of Covid-19" with students causing "circles of infection" that can easily spread.

And she voiced growing fears that the situation is spiralling out of control with Freshers' Week just around the corner.
