A hospitality leader has said the question of tourism this summer "is more an issue of a green light than a green list".

Janice Gault, head of the Northern Ireland Hotels Federation, said the current government advice, which is only to travel if it is essential, was causing confusion for those aiming to go abroad or plan a holiday.

She added that for local hotels "summer will be about the staycation, with a drive to secure domestic business and attract visitors from the south of Ireland".
