A majority of the Northern Ireland public is in favour of mandatory quarantine for travellers from Great Britain, a new survey has found.

The survey carried out by LucidTalk and IrelandThinks found almost two thirds (65%) would be in favour of a 10-day mandatory hotel quarantine for those setting foot on the island from Great Britain.

Of the remaining respondents, 30% were opposed and the other 5% were unsure.
