The iconic Dark Hedges in Co Antrim have lost another tree which has fallen overnight.

The tree-lined Bregagh Road in Ballymoney is a popular tourist destination for Game of Thrones fans as it is the location for the Kingsroad in the hit fantasy series.

It was closed to traffic on Wednesday due as the road was partially blocked.

It comes after several trees fell victim to Storm Gertrude in January.

The wood was salvaged to create 10 Game of Thrones themed doors which were unveiled at tourist destinations across Northern Ireland last month to coincide with the airing of the sixth season.
