The reopening of non-essential retail in Northern Ireland has resulted in long queues gathering outside shops as restrictions are eased.
Many of the crowds have been gathering in Belfast as images on social media reveal large groups of people queuing up to enter shops that have been closed off to the public since January.
PSNI officers are currently stationed in Belfast city centre to enforce social distancing amongst the crowds, who have been queueing since 7am when the stores opened. As well as non-essential retail, pubs have reopened for outdoor dining along with restaurants and cafés.
Gyms and swimming pools have also reopened for individual training. The number of people allowed in outdoor gatherings in gardens has increased to 15 people from no more than three different households.
Self-contained tourist accommodation such as rented holiday homes can also operate from today.
