Pokémon Go players in Belfast give their tips on how to catch ‘em all

UTV's Marc Mallett has headed into Belfast city centre to learn how to play Pokémon Go.

He also asked players of the hit new game for mobile where the best place in Belfast is to find Pokémon.

One player said he has walked 60 miles since installing the game on his phone in his effort to ‘catch ‘em all’.

None admitted to driving around to play the game, although PSNI have issued a warning to motorists after discovering someone cruising at 15mph to help her little sister find Pokémon.

“And by the looks of it, it's been almost entirely generated by people within Northern Ireland."
