BBC Northern Ireland is axing its popular traffic and travel service, which has been an essential part of rush hour for thousands of commuters for more than two decades.

The service's two presenters, Elaine Sutherland and Anne Jordan, are said to be shaken by the shock news, which was broken to them late last week.

Newsroom staff are also reported to be upset by the sudden decision to drop the service, which was suspended during lockdown.
