Belfast City Hall was bathed in a myriad of colours for the first time thanks to a brand-new high-tech lighting system.

The civic building became the first in Europe to boast the system.

It used LED floodlighting and according to the Council it will help reduce bills and CO2 emissions.

City Hall is one of seven European buildings chosen to take part in the EU's 'illuminate' pilot project - which will see new solid state lighting systems installed on other landmarks, such as the world famous waterfront in Genoa, Italy.
