The Green and White Army is on its way to France, with thousands of Northern Ireland supporters jetting off to support the team at Euro 2016.

Flags, fancy footwear and an array of French attire was on display as fans streamed through Belfast City Airport and Belfast International on Thursday.

They were in high spirits as they got their Euro 2016 journey underway, ahead of Northern Ireland's first game against Poland in Nice this weekend.

Some fans have already arrived in France, including Ballymena man Ian Thompson who is currently on his way through Saint-Georges-de-Reneins in a camper van.
