A Co Fermanagh man has been fined £1,000 for flouting strict quarantine rules after returning home from the Balearic islands.

Assistant Chief Constable Alan Todd on Wednesday confirmed the PSNI had issued the fine, adding the management of the regulations for people arriving into Northern Ireland were a matter for the UK Border Force.

The man is understood to have spent time on one of the islands before returning home. It is understood the penalty was issued after he went out socialising in Enniskillen at the weekend before testing positive for Covid-19.
