Bright, clear skies brought sun-seekers across Northern Ireland to scenic spots yesterday in a welcome change after June's disappointing weather so far.

Popular locations for those looking to bask in the warmer temperatures included Bangor in Co Down. Not too far away, dog walkers took advantage of the pleasant 17C temperatures to walk their pets in Helen's Bay.

Less than 24 hours earlier eastern parts of the country - including Belfast - were in the grip of heavy downpours, which appeared to suggest this month would continue to be a wash-out weather-wise.

However, the break in poor weather in Northern Ireland was in sharp contrast to the rest of the UK, particularly parts of England, where there were flood warnings in place yesterday.

Those expecting the spell of sunshine for Northern Ireland to continue for the rest of the week may be disappointed.

Today is expected to bring some showers which are also set to make a return later this week ahead of the weekend.
