All NI schools to close after storm warning

All schools in Northern Ireland are to close on Monday due to risks posed by gusts resulting from Hurricane Ophelia.

The announcement was made by Stormont officials late on Sunday night after weather warnings were issued for Northern Ireland.

The Met Office is forecasting winds of up to 65mph (105km/h) across the region on Monday.

The Department of Education said its move to close schools was an “appropriate response”.
