Hay bale superheroes keep the distance in Northern Ireland

One community in Northern Ireland have built hay bale superheroes to remind themselves that "together we are a super power" in the fight against coronavirus, BBC News NI's Ali Gordon reports.

The 12ft (3.65m) high structures have been erected in a field near Newtownstewart, County Tyrone.

Spiderman, Batman, Iron Man, Captain America, Wonder Woman and Superwoman are attracting lots of visitors.

"We thought we'd use the bales as a message for Covid-19 - that superheroes represent us, the people, who are key weapons in the battle against coronavirus," said Shauneen Kilpatrick.
