A community care worker who saw her grandchildren for the first time since lockdown began said it was the best birthday present she could ever hope to get.

Lisburn woman Rhonda Mahood (57) has spent the last nine weeks looking after people in their homes, while 57-year-old husband Jim has been driving buses for Translink.

They have four grandchildren - daughter Glenda's sons Jordan James (8), Carter (who'll be 6 on May 30) and Grace (2), and Jack (8), Jim's daughter Lindsay Barber's son.
