By Joanne Savage

Two of Northern Ireland's star tourist attractions are in the running for 2014 British Travel Awards.

Titanic Belfast is up for the Best UK Leisure Attraction Award, while Giant's Causeway has been shortlisted in the Best Heritage Attraction section.

Titanic Belfast CEO Tim Husbands said: "It is a huge boost to Belfast and Northern Ireland that just two years after Titanic Belfast opened we have a visitor attraction that can compete with the UK's elite.

"We would encourage everyone to support this nomination." Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland's only World Heritage Site, is also seeking votes. Last year it attracted 750,000 visitors. The National Trust's Max Bryant said: "We hope that visitors and local residents will take the time to vote for the Giant's Causeway before the end of September."

The public are urged to support the nominations by voting online at Voting closes on September 30.
