Prince death: Call for Belfast City Hall to be lit purple in tribute to superstar

A Belfast councillor has called for city hall to be lit purple to celebrate the life of rock star Prince, who has died.

The Purple Rain singer died on Thursday after the 57-year-old was found collapsed in his home in Minnesota.

East Belfast Alliance councillor David Armitage called for the city hall lights to go purple to remember the icon.

"I loved Sign of the Times. Great album," he tweeted.

Tributes have been paid across Northern Ireland to the star.
