In line for giant trouble! thumbnailVehicles parked on double yellow lines and blocking the road at the Giant's Causeway is causing annoyance to local residents.

A RESIDENT of The Causeway Road, Bushmills, has spoken out amid fears of an accident occurring as The Giant's Causeway soars in popularity and urges The National Trust, Council and Road Service to get their act together before a life is lost.
Nat Magee, who has lived on the Causeway Road for over 30 years, has seen a sharp hike in tourists over the years, with him branding August the 'worst' month for heavy traffic.
Nat explained how visitors to the nearby tourist attraction often abandon their vehicles on the double yellow lines and walk from there - preferring to pay a fine than pay the car park charges.
He said: "There have been plans mentioned previously. A local property developer had plans for a 220 space car park and space for 14 buses, plus a roundabout and two lay-bys - I can't begin to tell you the difference that would make to our lives.
