Video: Tall ships - What the visitors made of Belfast's largest maritime festival

Belfast is shipshape as today marks the beginning of the spectacular Tall Ships four-day maritime festival. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to turn out over the next four days to see 50 spectacular vessels from around the world berthed at Belfast Harbour and the Titanic Quarter, before setting off to race. The event is expected to provide a major boost to local tourism, with £5m coming into the economy from 40,000 overnight stays, as NI enjoys another chance to shine on the global stage.
