Children across Northern Ireland have adorned the windows of their homes with rainbows and messages of support during the coronavirus lockdown.

With families observing the advice to stay indoors, and schools and many businesses shut, it’s hoped the brightly-coloured images can help spread some positivity.

Some of those who have taken part have shared their photos with UTV.
