Traffic is to be banned from part of a County Antrim road – constructed famous by the Tv fantasy drama Game of Thrones – to protect trees known as the Dark Hedges.

The tunnel of beech trees on the Bregagh Road, near Armoy, has become a major international tourist attraction.

The scene was used by the Game of Thrones crew to represent “the Kingsroad” in the HBO drama series.

Stormont’s Department for Infrastructure is introducing a ban on cars using the road from 30 October.
