A Belfast City Council committee has voted in favour of outsourcing the operation of city leisure centres, despite union opposition.

The committee voted in favour of the changes by a margin of 10 to six.

Unions protested outside the meeting, fearing the move could lead to redundancies and changes to hours and conditions.

BBC News NI Business Correspondent Julian O'Neill reports.
