Concerns remain that a significant minority of people are continuing to ignore the mandatory requirement to wear face coverings on public transport in Northern Ireland.

While Translink has reported "very high levels of compliance" from passengers, the figure could still be as low as 60%.

Police confirmed that since the introduction of the mandatory policy on July 10, no fines have been issued.
