Footage has emerged online of a stand-off between photographers and Game of Thrones security staff while filming was taking place at Carnlough Harbour.

Cast and crew from the smash-hit TV show arrived in the village this week to film key scenes for the upcoming sixth season, with star Maisie Williams- who plays Arya Stark- braving the cold waters at the harbour for her scene.

And a number of Press photographers were hot on their heels, determined to snap some shots of the event.

But, as a YouTube video shows, their task was not an easy one.

The clip, shot on a mobile device and clocking in at under two minutes, shows several security guards in blue jackets swarming around photographers and placing their hands in front of the camera lens in a bid to block their view of the filming.

Game of Thrones has been filming in various locations across Northern Ireland for a number of years, with many spots becoming popular tourist attractions after appearing in the show.

This week, filming for the fantasy epic took place at privately-owned land just off Sallagh Road on the outskirts of Larne, with 400 extras involved.

Meanwhile, local councillors are backing calls for the Game of Thrones TV set to be left at Magheramorne Quarry as a tourist attraction after filming wraps. The site, which is owned by Lafarge Tarmac, doubles as Castle Black, the Wall and the Wildling village of Hardhome in the HBO-produced series.
