The Stormont Executive has refused to rule out introducing another hospitality curfew as part of lifting lockdown restrictions in Northern Ireland.

It is understood that nothing is off the table as the Executive plans to reopen Northern Ireland’s economy and facilitate a return to normal life as the coronavirus pandemic eases.

However, Hospitality Ulster chief executive Colin Neil said the Executive’s own evidence showed the previous curfew had a “marginal impact” on the spread of the virus.
