Thousands turn up to BBC Antiques Roadshow in Belfast laden with treasures and heirlooms

Thousands of people have flocked to Stormont in Belfast for the filming of BBC's Antiques Roadshow.

Filming at Stormont Estate began early on Saturday morning, July 29, and visitors were encouraged to stay on and watch the show being recorded.

To cater for the  large crowds and manage the impact on traffic, a free park and ride service was operating between Dundonald House car park and the Castle Building car park on the Stormont Estate.

Presenter Fiona Bruce told BBC Radio Ulster: "Stormont is not somewhere we've been before and obviously it's a very interesting location for all sorts of reasons, both politically and historically.

She added: "If you predict what's going to come, you will be wrong. The joy of the Roadshow is the surprise. We never know what will turn up and we are constantly surprised by what does.

"What amazes me still is that there are incredible things of imortance and value, that people still have tucked away in there homes."
