Wrightbus, one of Ballymena’s biggest employers, has closed until April 20 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Wrightbus announced that in light of Government guidance, it would temporarily close its factory to protect its workforce, their families and the local community.

"We will keep this under review and are committed to resuming production as soon as possible," the company said.

"We understand this is a difficult time for all concerned and we are seeking guidance from the Government on the measures they will be taking to protect the UK manufacturing industry and its workforce."
