Health Minister Robin Swann has fired a warning at those who continue to flout health regulations, saying that they might as well be "slapping a nurse in the face".

Northern Ireland has been warned it's facing the most difficult winter ever as new lockdown measures from the Executive come into force.

Tough new measures come into force at midnight on Thursday, with First Minister Arlene Foster saying hopes are now pinned on the vaccination programme as being "our way out of this."
