Four Seasons Health Care to close seven care homes in Northern Ireland

Seven Northern Ireland care homes privately owned by the Four Seasons Health Care group are to be closed.

The group said the homes have been operating at a loss and are no longer viable.

Following the announcement, Stormont's Health Minister Simon Hamilton has halted the closure of some state-owned residential homes because of the uncertainty in the private sector.

Louise Cullen reports.
