Dalriada Multiple Sclerosis unit closure 'will be devastating' says one patient

Closing Northern Ireland's only dedicated respite centre will have a devastating impact on people with multiple sclerosis, a woman who uses the unit has said.

The unit, in Dalriada Hospital in Ballycastle, County Antrim, will close until March next year.

Rita Gallagher, who uses the unit, told BBC News NI's Ita Dungan what benefits the service brings to her and her family.
