If you mean the 20 second news update at 9pm on BBC One NI, and the weather updates on BBC Two NI at 8 and 10pm... no. They stopped almost a year ago during the first lockdown.

From the other side, but worth sharing: it's Jane Loughrey's last shift at UTV today.

She’s been on since 2001. she did reporting but I don’t think she presented any bulletins. all the best for her.

1992; Jane has been the longest-serving current reporter in the newsroom until today.

(Yeah, Paul Clark and Pamela Ballantine have both filed reports in their time at UTV, but each is regarded more as a presenter.)

Not long until Ken himself, and Frank, leave now...

Jane's departure featured on tonight's UTV Live... and rightfully so.
