The Olympic torch visited some of Northern Ireland's biggest landmarks on its journey today.

The relay started at the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge in Co Antrim and was then carried to the Giant's Causeway.

Later it was carried across the Peace Bridge in Derry.

The events were part of the torch's five-day journey around Northern Ireland and Dublin.

It will arrive in London next month.
