A senior medic has issued a warning to shoppers as people in Northern Ireland prepare to hit the high street this weekend ahead of lockdown.

Friday saw chaotic queues and crowds as the public flocked to stores and retail outlets before they close on November 27.

However Dr Tom Black, chair of the British Medical Association in Northern Ireland, urged people to be cautious and not to stay in shops too long.
