There are some restrictions to jail regimes
Visits are continuing at jails in Northern Ireland despite an overtime ban by prison officers, the NIO has said.

A 48-hour ban began on Friday in a dispute over pay.

Officers are due to resume overtime on Sunday, but said they would withdraw "goodwill" next week.

A Northern Ireland Office spokeswoman said there were some restrictions to jail regimes.

"In each prison establishment visits are continuing to operate and this will be kept under review," she said.
