Edwin Poots on care homes, Kathryn Stone on leaving her post & a theme park has banned male visitors from baring their chests.

Health Minister Edwin Poots has now confirmed that all 18 care homes will stay open and that existing residents will be allowed to remain in their home for as long as they wish and so long as their needs can continue to be met.

"I can't take it in yet." 93 year old Jean Faulkner on the news that her care home won't close

Health Minister on care homes reprieve

The Northern Ireland Victims' Commissioner Kathryn Stone is leaving her post. She's been in the job for just over 18 months.
The first and deputy first ministers thanked her for her "service to all victims".

“I was frustrated that people didn't understand my role” - Kathryn on leaving her Victims' Commissioner role

It looks like the weather is on the turn and temperatures are starting to heat up. Which in Belfast normally means men walking around with their tops off.
Now a theme park in England has taken the decision to ban male visitors from baring their chests during visits to the attraction.
Adventure Island in Southend has erected signs asking its male customers not to take off their tops, and says it will ask those who do so to leave.

So is this fair? Should this rule be introduced on the streets of belfast Or is this discrimination against men?
