Motorists are being warned to expect delays in and around Belfast and the Greater Belfast area today, as a result of the Bush visit and a number of protests.

Police will be actively patrolling, while members of the Roads Service Traffic Information and Control Centre will also be monitoring traffic closely.

In order to minimise disruption to members of the public, there will be traffic and travel advice issued through the media at key times, which drivers are being asked to listen out for.

Updates will also be available via the Roads Service's Information Line on 08457 123 321.

Electronic information signs operated by Roads Service Traffic Information and Control Centre will be in operation to provide relevant traffic advice as to traffic conditions on the main approaches.

Motorists are being asked to allow more time and to expect some delays in the area.

Anyone travelling to airports to get a flight is being asked to allow more time for their journey.

There will be a protest at Belfast City Hall at 12:30pm and a further protest at Stormont at 2.30pm. Extensive disruption is expected and drivers are being advised to avoid these areas in particular.
