Hundreds attend jobs rally in Ballymena

Hundreds of people have attended a rally in Ballymena, County Antrim, calling for investment to bring new jobs to the town.

Almost 2,000 people will lose their jobs when Michelin and JTI Gallaher close within the next two years.

Leading actor, Liam Neeson, who is originally from Ballymena, has lent his voice to the campaign and a message from him was played to the crowd on a big screen on Saturday.
