Relatives welcome court decision to keep Dalriada hospital open

Dalriada Hospital, in Ballycastle, County Antrim, has won a temporary reprieve after a judge ruled it must continue to accept new patients.

This follows a decision by the Northern Health Trust to close the hospital, which also has a multiple sclerosis respite unit.

Campaigners and relatives of those at the hospital say they are "elated" at the decision.

BBC News NI Health Correspondent Marie-Louise Connolly reports.
