More than 300 jobs at Northern Ireland’s Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) are being lost.

The UK government is centralising services at the DVA in Swansea, Wales.

Northern Ireland’s Environment Minister Mark H Durkan described the job losses as a “devastating blow”.

Most of the Northern Ireland jobs are based at the DVA’s office in Coleraine.
