Families who lost loved ones during the Covid-19 pandemic gathered for a commemoration at Stormont on Monday night.

The event involved people bereaved over the last 18 months displaying a collection of painted stones in memory of their relatives.

Brenda Doherty, whose mother Ruth Burke died in March, was one of the organisers.

Her group is now campaigning to have a permanent memorial installed for all those who died:
