Northern Ireland's largest independent bus company Chambers has gone into administration.

The administrator said he was confident there would be no job losses among the County Londonderry firm's 85 staff and its services would continue as normal.

This includes a contract with the Department for Regional Development to provide door-to-door transport for people with disabilities.

The Moneymore-based firm's private hire operation has been sold.

The bus company was owned by the Chambers family for 40 years, but was bought in 2007 by Northern Ireland-based venture capital firm Enterprise Equity.
