Most people complied with new rules on wearing face coverings on public transport that came into force yesterday, Translink has said.

Face coverings are now mandatory on bus, train and ferry services as well as public transport premises, such as stations.

Exemptions include those who cannot wear face coverings for medical reasons and children aged under 13. The PSNI has indicated that it will rely on "other bodies" to help enforce the rules.
