It is thirty years since the first DeLorean car was produced in Belfast.

In 1981 the first DeLorean rolled off the production lines of a factory in Dunmurray, West Belfast. The DeLorean went on to gain cult status in the 'Back to the Future' movies.

Eurofest 2011 marks a series of events taking place in celebration of thirty years of the iconic car in the city of its birth. DeLorean cars from around the world gather at a Belfast city centre car park as part of the celebrations.

Reporter Laura Whelan talks to Welmoed Jonker from the Netherlands about the event. Ronald Ferguson, President of the DeLorean Association says it is a great opportunity to meet other DeLorean owners and the people who actually worked on the cars.

The report includes footage of the DeLorean cars being manufactured. At its height the DeLorean factory employed around 2,500 people in Dunmurray. Only one model the DMC12 was ever produced.

DeLorean enthusiast John Dore talks about customising the car. Matt Reese from Wales also talks about the reaction of driving through Belfast in the DeLorean.
