Twenty-one firefighters tackled a blaze at a large shed in Co Antrim on Wednesday evening.

The fire broke out just after 5pm in a large shed off the Ballyboley junction of the Larne A8 road.

Police were forced to close the dual carriageway in both directions for a period during the evening commute home.

Firefighters removed a number of gas cylinders and crews wearing breathing apparatus were quickly able to bring the fire under control using firefighting water jets.

The incident was brought under control with crews remaining on scene to dampen down the fire and to begin their investigation into the cause.
