A grand new entrance to one of Belfast’s biggest parks was unveiled yesterday.

The footbridge across the Connswater River was declared open at a gathering attended by the First Minister and other grandees, helping to link the Syndenham neighbourhood of east Belfast to the up-and-coming Titanic Quarter area, via Victoria Park.

The new Sam Thompson Bridge was officially opened on Friday by First Minister Peter Robinson, Lord Mayor of Belfast M�irt�n O Muilleoir and Sam Thompson's family members Abigail Dunn and Jackie Maguire.
