Newtownabbey Borough Council has agreed to spend around £30,000 on a purpose-built bonfire site in the Ballyduff estate.

The decision was taken at a council meeting on Monday night when members voted 10-7 in favour of a proposal from DUP councillor Robert Hill that the scheme proceeds, subject to agreement with the Housing Executive and local residents.

Last year fears were raised by residents after a massive bonfire consisting of thousands of tyres and pallets was built near homes.
