Ministers have also agreed ten people from two households can participate in outdoor sporting activities, golf courses can reopen and click and collect services will be allowed for garden centres.

Meanwhile, from the 12th of April, meetings outdoors in a private garden are expected to be extended to up to ten people.

Stay at home requirements are also expected to be lifted on that date - to be replaced by a 'stay local' message, while sports training can resume outdoors for sports clubs.

However, all of these measures are subject to final ratification by the Executive the week before they come into effect, likely the 8th of April.
